Concept Aware® Workshop with J. Sybylla Smith 
Griffin Museum of Photography
June 8, 2019 from 10 am – 3 pm
June 9, 2019 from 10 am – 2 pm

This two-day workshop focuses on eight specific practices within the creative process that take an idea and/or inspiration and develop it into a unique style, a project and ultimately a body of work. Learn the critical thinking skills that will strengthen your own personal visual language, increase your awareness of artistic decision-making, and cultivate new habits that will impact your imagery.

Saturday workshop features an in-depth slide presentation, lecture and discussion illustrating the eight foundational steps and practices of the creative process. We will discuss each step individually, and compare and contrast how they relate to each other. By analyzing how other artists have applied these practices you will integrate new practices into your own creative process.

Participants will be asked to create a new image or select an existing image to be uploaded and shared in the final session of the workshop. Discussion will focus on the application of the eight foundational steps.

Sunday class continues with a discussion of participants work and a conclusion of the class content. Handouts and a bibliography for further study will be provided. Workshop ends with a wrap up discussion/summary on the workshop itself.
