Exploring Photography: Dawoud Bey's Harlem, U.S.A. Series

July 9, 2012
Ryan Education Center
$100; 10 CPDUs

July 9–10, 2012

Teacher Program: This two-day workshop explores how our understanding of photographic images can be critically examined and enlarged through connections with other media, such as literature, poetry, film, and informational texts. Participants will use concept maps to build relationships among these sources and Dawoud Bey’s Harlem, U.S.A. series of photographs taken between 1975 and 1979, and then create portraits using digital photography. This interdisciplinary approach stresses visual literacy and its relevance to the Common Core State Standards' emphasis on integration of knowledge and ideas from diverse formats. Language arts, social studies, and art teachers are especially encouraged to attend. This exciting workshop features a special tour led by the artist!

This workshop has reached capacity and is now closed.
