From Vision to Project

with Jon Henry

April 10 – May 8, 2024

Wednesdays; 5:00 – 7:00 pm (Mountain Time)
  • Tuition $595.00

Course Description

Having an idea or vision is one thing, but transforming that vision into a project or a long-term series can be a challenge for photographers. Over the span of five weeks, this new online workshop with Jon Henry aims to demystify the process of working on a long-term project as he assists you in its development. Participants join with either a new idea for a body of work or a project in its early stages, and from there, Jon establishes a structure to nurture and expand each individual project. By the end of the workshop, each photographer has gained practical and layered methods of viewing their work and a plan to sustain the process beyond the duration of the workshop.

Through a combination of in-class research, image review, analysis, and group critique, our goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the work we create and how to define our artistic voice. Active participation is essential as participants present new work for group critique sessions, fostering skill improvement in a supportive environment. Additionally, we review completed works by various artists to study the distinct strategies they use in making their work distinct.

Join Jon online this spring and explore the concept of taking your vision for a project to completion by making a well thought out plan.

That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event.
