Adult Workshop: Portrait Photo Collages

Jose Luis Garcia

Galleries and Classrooms

Using inspiration from the photographs in the exhibition Presence: The Photography Collection of Judy Glickman Lauder, create your own portrait using digital photographs and collage. 

Participants will learn about alternative photography methods such as photomontage, collage, scannography, and photo-copying to create unique photo prints. Participants are prompted to collaborate with others to photograph themselves with a Classroom Camera and later deconstruct and recompose their image during this unique workshop.
