Introduction to Video Art

In this six-session course we will look to the history of video art for examples to inspire our own making. We will use the tools and materials at our disposal to engage in experimentation and create original works of video art in Fleisher’s digital media lab.

Note that this classroom is accessible by stairs only; please contact Fleisher for more information.

Please note: This is a 6-session workshop. Fleisher will be closed on Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day, and class will conclude on Monday, August 1.
