Overview

 Projects and assignments encourage each student to explore individual directions, with equal emphasis given to intuitive and intellectual concerns. 

Student  work is evaluated for aesthetic qualities, technical excellence, and conceptual development. 

The curriculum is designed to help students build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of contemporary photographic practice, while emphasizing the medium's expressive potential and underscoring its connections to the contemporary art world. Interdisciplinary and experimental work is encouraged, as are more traditional approaches and conventional processes. 

Facilities are available to enable offerings in a wide range of processes and techniques, from silver-based image production and digital capture/output methods to alternative processes such as cyanotype and palladium printing. In short, information and instruction are provided for whichever image making strategies a student wishes to pursue.

  • Fundamental knowledge and mastery of media and processes necessary to communicate meaning in a work of art.
  • Ability to communicate clearly about their own art and the art of others.
