Conceptual Portraiture (Grades 4-12)

Program description

Students will learn how to convey ideas through symbolic portraits of themselves or their classmates. Students will write and sketch out a plan for their portraits. We will provide lights, backdrops, props and more to bring their ideas to life. Photo shoots can be completed on campus or at a location of their choice. Artists focusing on conceptual portraiture will be introduced to offer inspiration. Photos can be paired with poems or narratives in the format of books or prints for display at your school. Students can express their individual ideas or create photographic art around a particular theme.
