Photography as Art in Boise

Art Wolfe

Sunday, March 31, 2019 (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM)

Signup is through the Art Wolfe website:

In this full-day seminar, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions. You’ll explore innovative ways to translate conceptual ideas into creative results, learn how to spot the non-obvious, and uncover new ways to expand your visual imagination.


History and Context 9:00 - 11:00 AM

Learn about the design elements that Art uses in every photo he takes. Trace the history of photography from documentary to art, and examine its richness and breadth.

Concepts 11:00 - 12:30 PM

Open your mind to a new way of seeing. We’ll view images both provocative and traditional, as we learn how photography has evolved.

Break for Lunch 12:30 - 1:30 PM

Vision and Imagination 1:30 - 3:00 PM

Probe the parallels between abstract expressionism and the emergence of photography as fine art. Delve into metaphor and imagination as you explore the critical elements of your artistic expression.

Q & A

We’ll provide ample time for you to follow up on aspects of the presentation that interested you most.

What you’ll take away
