Collage and the Moving Image (six-session workshop)

This course will explore an animation technique utilized and developed by visual artist, Yannick Lowery. Lowery will share and demonstrate his technique for creating moving images utilizing traditional analog collage techniques and electronically generated image sequences. Additionally, Lowery will provide guidance and insight into his practice and encourage students to develop their own animation techniques within the framework of the course. Classes will typically start with a demonstration and or discussion. Students will utilize the remaining time in class to illustrate the concepts and techniques discussed. Familiarity with photoshop would be useful but not required.

Please note: this classroom is accessible by stairs only; please contact Fleisher for more information.
