Project Developer: 4 Projects to Jump-Start Your Creativity

The process of image-making revolves around a circuit of production: first, we do the hard work of thinking, reading, and discussing. Once we’ve made it through that process, we can begin photographing, editing, and presenting. In 4 Projects to Jump-Start Your Creativity, instructor Mark Chen will support your journey through the image-making process by introducing students to four unique projects over four weeks. These projects have carefully crafted to increase visual literacy, foster creativity, and invite reflection. Whether you are just beginning your artistic journey, are right in the middle of it, or are rejoining after a hiatus, you will leave this course feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to take on your next project.
