Empowerment + Portrait Photography

Date:
Saturday, July 8, 2017
Time:
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Cost:
$60 Museum Members, $70 non-members

In this workshop, students learn how photographic techniques can tell a story and create different dynamics between the photographer, subject, and viewer. Students work with each other and community members to craft unique portraits that empower their subjects. Students bring their own digital camera (smartphone, point-and-shoot, or SLR) and a notepad.

Instructor Mercedes Jelinek is a New York-based photographer who is currently a resident artist at Penland School of Crafts. After earning bachelor and master of fine arts degrees in photography, she built a freelance photography career in architecture, fashion, event, and journalism. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and can be found in numerous museum and private collections. Her latest book These Americans is about the Women’s March on Washington.

Space is limited. For more information or to register by phone, call 828.253.3227 x122.

Adult Studio

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a full core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes. To add your name to our Adult Studio mailing list, email Kristi McMillan, adult programs manager, or call 828.253.3227 x122.
