Course Description

What is a flower—and what could it be? Open your mind to see the possibilities. With a background in theatre, photographer Leanne Trivett S. knows how to create dynamic stories, and she invites you to let your imagination run wild and push your botanical images farther than ever before.

By taking innovative approaches to art, you can liberate yourself and connect to your creative voice. Together we experiment with our images and write about them. As we tap into our emotions, we consider color and objects to add to our work. In-class time is spent on lectures about inspiring artists, reviews of participant work, and individual coaching. During weekly assignments and group sharing, Leanne offers feedback to guide each participant.

Because this workshop’s overarching goal is to try out new ideas and add new ways of thinking to our practice, only a small amount of technical proficiency is required—namely, experience in digital workflow, confidence operating your camera of choice, and ability to select and download images.

As you create unique images utilizing different techniques, you take your art to new heights. The flower is the actor, you are the director, and the world is your stage. Join Leanne and discover how to give dramatic voice to your botanical images.
