This workshop is designed for students who would like to learn how to work with video and incorporate drawing and painting into a time-based media. This workshop will prove that even if your main focus is drawing and painting, video is within your realm of possibilities.
Students will learn how to have elements of their drawings move, add sound, and manipulate other exciting components with the technique of layering with editing. Students will work on drawing, painting, and developing a component that will react or have motion using video for this intervention. Students can also work solely with video to create works, by first drawing storyboards to decide on what will be the main motivations.
There will be examples of other artists who work with video, and students will use these references to help develop their works. No prior video experience is necessary. Students should bring any version of the following: iPhone, camera, laptop, video camera, paper and pencils. (Note: these materials are not required to join the workshop!)
