Alternative Processes for Educators
with Michael Webb
July 29 - August 3, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Due to the resurgence of handmade photographic prints and the exploding interest in non-traditional printing techniques, teachers at all levels now have to be knowledgeable in 19th- and 20th-century alternative processes as well as 21st-century digital imaging. This weeklong workshop provides you, the educator, with a sound foundation in techniques and aesthetics of alternative photographic processes, also known as Alt Pro.

Alt Pro has many practical applications for students, is educational beyond the realm of photography, and is fun for a diverse population. Michael starts the week with a survey of the history of non-silver photography, then moves into a hands-on exploration of a wide selection of Alt Pro processes, including cyanotype, Van Dyke, argyrotype, gum bichromate, salted paper process, albumen, and wax and Polaroid transfer processes. We also cover methods for making enlarged negatives by using pinhole cameras, film and digital cameras, flatbed scanners, and copy machines.

Focusing on the D.I.Y. approach of art making and creative discovery, we explore critique methods, discuss curriculum and lesson planning, and expand our knowledge of artists working in alt pro by visiting local museums and galleries. Join Michael for an inspiring week of educational exploration and networking, along with a healthy dose of self-expression and personal growth.
