Picture This (Week Two)

Instructor(s): Lisa Johnson Private: Nicole Rowley

They say, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and Rochester hosts the home of a picture giant: George Eastman. If you love to write poetry or short stories and photograph, then join us! We’ll spend a week exploring the George Eastman House gardens, photo galleries, and permanent museum collection as inspiration for our creative writing (as well as trying picture-making methods from pinhole cameras to Photoshop). Participants will create photographic narratives with their cameras. Our pens will capture the words that help to tell the photographic story. A final presentation featuring the participants’ photographic and written expressions will be displayed at a last day “art opening” exhibition. If you have your own digital camera, you may wish to bring it.
