For those of you that may have attended this seminar previously when Art presented it at the Kenmore Camera store, please note that it has been updated. The version that he is teaching now is quite different than the one that he offered before. Throughout the US tour Art continued to add to and improve the lecture.
With this special Seattle Deluxe Edition, we are offering a special meet and greet that will take place at Art’s home. Where there will be hors d’oeuvre’s, wine, and a special slide show offered by Art! We will also include a copy of one of Art’s popular how-to books.
In this three part series Art will establish unequivocally that the photograph stands toe to toe with painting, sculpture, and the other prominent forms of art.
This is an intentional journey to discover a new way of seeing and making art through the photographic medium. This full day seminar has been carefully crafted using hundreds of photographs that support the concepts Art is presenting.

FIRST LECTURE: Context
Here Art discusses the evolution of the photograph from documentary to art. This lecture brings into focus the design elements that Art utilizes in virtually every photograph he has ever made.

THIRD LECTURE: Vision and Imagination
Here Art draws indisputable parallels between abstract expressionist and the emergence of photography as an art. Finally Art illustrates the importance of metaphor and imagination tied to the sub conscience en-route to “Artist Expression.”
Q & A
First, allow me to mention that I have been a photographer for just over 40 years now. In all that time I have read and heard a lot about how to improve photography. By no means do I feel that I have mastered the craft, but after four decades so much of the information out there seems somewhat redundant. I am always looking to improve, so I was delighted with Art’s seminar! I found Art’s enthusiasm for photography to be engaging and inspiring. His comments were energizing and opened my creative thinking. I left the seminar a better photographer compared to when I arrived.
