The Art of Seeing – Portland: Cultivating Vision and Imagination 2-Day Seminar

October 29, 2021 - October 31, 2021

| $799

Event Navigation

After an amazingly successful SOLD OUT Seattle seminar we decided to offer this special two day seminar in Portland, OR!

What is YOUR creative vision? Join Art Wolfe for this newly developed two-day workshop in Portland and begin to discover and define what makes your photography unique to you. Kicking off on Friday October 29th, you’ll join Art for an exclusive reception. Beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be provided, and Art will also be giving a special sneak preview of Art’s upcoming book projects.

Over the next two days Art will use lectures, critiques, and art history as a reference to assist you in building a visual vocabulary of mental creative tools you’ll be able to employ wherever your travels may take you. Art will join participants in the field for two sessions at notable Seattle locations – this is a remarkable opportunity to photograph with Art!

The goal of the Art of Seeing is just that – teaching photography enthusiasts at all skill levels to truly visualize and identify creative shots that stand on their own as unique artistic creations rather than the typical travel photo. Throughout the course of the weekend, Art will discuss his approach and how it might help foster your own creative style.

To keep our instructors and clients safe and healthy as well as streamlining the process of acquiring venues and accommodations, we are asking that all workshop and seminar participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding!

Space is limited to 20 total participants to ensure social distancing is possible.
