VPAS 677 Visual Arts for the Classroom: Composing And Creating the Personal Photograph

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is designed for educators to create well-composed, engaging, personal photographic works of art to communicate multiple meanings- far beyond the ‘selfie’- as primary sources in today’s K-12 classroom. We will explore educator-selected subject matter in an effort to ‘locate’ and analyze multiple photographic meanings. Course topics include finding a viewpoint, composing a photograph, reading a photograph, and keeping the viewer’s eyes engaged in the image. Making photographs meaningful- and bridging connections to curriculum- within today’s classroom can hold incredible power for K-12 students. Educators will create and leave with their own portfolios to bring back to their classrooms and share with students in September. The course will be digital camera-based.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
