Abstract Astoria Workshop 2024 – SOLD OUT!

May 23 - May 26

| $2950

Event Navigation

Astoria is a fantastic location to offer a workshop. Not only do they have wonderful restaurants, but there is close access to the Oregon Coast as well as multiple abstract photo locations. Although some of our time will be spent on the coast, the majority of it will be spent focusing on transforming your perspective on photography as we delve into the abstract realm.

Art is a firm believer that all aspects of the craft can be improved immensely by focusing on capturing abstract imagery. The mental fortitude and attention to detail that are required for abstract photography train your brain to carefully analyze every composition you capture. Through intensive field and critique sessions Art will work closely with each participant pushing them to their creative limits and demonstrating the freedoms that you have as an artist to transform your images into beautiful pieces of art.

An image can have the power to stimulate the imagination and the intellect while also telling a story that awakens the senses.  Art’s challenge is to explore the nature of creativity itself and discover ways to bring its power to your images. (This workshop is conducive to all experience levels, novice through professional.)



Led by Art Wolfe
