For the first time, the University of South Carolina Beaufort is offering graduate level digital photography classes for art teachers on June 13th-17th. Workshop participants will gain new personal insights about the creative process, how to make aesthetic decisions in selecting subjects and frame composition, and an increased expertise in using Photoshop to manipulate captured images- all of which can be taken into the classroom and shared with students.
Classes will be taught by Dr. Phil Dunn, artist in residence and a Pulitzer nominated, award winning photographer with over thirty years experience as a photographer and an art educator. According to Dunn, “This workshop is the first in a series of professional development initiatives that will bring art teachers from all across South Carolina to the Historic Beaufort Campus to study digital photography as an art form. In the next several months we will continue to reach out to our community and the educational profession as we strive to build the Studio Art program at USC Beaufort.”
Evening activities will include a waterside barbeque on Lady’s Island and a presentation on Gullah culture. The workshop will culminate with a group exhibition and reception held at the USCB Gallery at the Center for the Arts on July 15, 2011.
Space in this workshop is limited to twenty participants. For pricing and additional information please email Dunnp@uscb.edu.
