“If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” – Edward Hopper
In this workshop we will discuss how to write artist statements that inform and intrigue the viewer without detracting from the expressive power of the artwork itself. In most cases, art communicates through images and objects rather than words. However, a good artist statement establishes a context in which your audience can begin to relate to and interpret your work. Think of it as a crucial ice breaker. An artist statement is required to accompany your portfolio to galleries, competitions, websites, and school applications.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their working statements to the workshop; time permitting, we can go through them after breaking the task down into basic steps.

ANALYZING A PHOTOGRAPH
May 27th, 2016
What follows is a discussion of the theory that leads to the rule of composition as it relates to works of Photography. Even though called a “rule” it possibly should be mentioned as an “instruction”, in that there will always be other creative considerations in mind.

The Art of Photography Workshop
May 20th, 2016
Photography to me has been a lifelong passion. My enjoyment has been through my ability to express myself and appreciate the works of others. I have a Bachelor of Arts and further training in Technical and Aesthetic principles of Photography. I taught Photography, Video and Graphics in Secondary Schools in Vancouver for close to 20 years. In retirement I continue to teach and workshop Photoshop and Photographic Composition at the College for the Retired in Burnaby.
The Art of Photography
A course in Photography should create a symbiosis between how a person sees the world and the technical process of capturing, working with and presenting an image. To this end, an individual should gain understanding of how to use composition to enhance what they capture. Also, one must gain control over the equipment and technology available to them. Finally, Art is achieved, when this symbiotic relationship is nurtured by enthusiasm and a desire to express their personal vision of life.
