The Studio Project Application Form High School 2020 - PHOTOGRAPHY
The Studio Project is FREE for local high school teens and is made possible by the Art Association of Jackson Hole (AAJH) and the National Museum of Wildlife Art (NMWA). This year's medium is PHOTOGRAPHY; cameras will be provided by the Art Association. Students will learn how the art of photography has evolved over hundreds of years to document history, tell stories, and as a mode of self expression. Students will uncover the rich, artistic possibilities of this medium by examining historic photographs and equipment, experimenting with film photography and contemporary photography methods. Studio explorations will include photographic concepts, composition, darkroom film development, printing techniques, instant film cameras, and cyanotype (sun paper) printing. Classes will be taught by Frances Ritchie, AAJH Youth Studio Manager, and Bronwyn Minton, AAJH Executive Director.
The Studio Project will meet at the Art Association for all classes except one, which will meet at the National Museum of Wildlife Art (date TBD). Students will need to arrange their own transportation to and from each session. Classes will be held on Mondays, 6-8pm, from January 20 through April 6, 2020 with the exception of school holidays.
Final artworks will be displayed in a professional exhibit at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
Only 10 students will be selected to participate so make your application count! Applications are due by Friday, January 6th at midnight. Late applications will be printed out and burned. Please do not make us do this!
