Course Description

ONLINE: This course is about using pictures to tell a story. A portfolio is an organized series of pictures with an artist’s statement about their meaning. By the end of this six-week course, you will have a portfolio of seven to 15 images you can enjoy, print, share and upload to a website. We will begin with a brief talk on some of the aspects of portfolios, illustrated by examples, and we will discuss possible directions you may want to take your portfolio. The classroom focus will be on your ideas, showing and discussing your work, and getting feedback. Between classes, you will work on what you want to say, the pictures that help you say it and the statement that organizes and conveys your thoughts. This course is not about technical skills. It is an interactive, creative effort, expressing a story through pictures. All that is needed is a digital camera and the ability to upload digital images to the class website. The instructor will be available for one-on-one assistance as needed. | Facilitated discussion, Active Skill Learning.

Max enrollment: 14.

Section Notes

Students need a digital camera from which they can download images and the ability to then upload those images to the class website. Another OLLI course, Build a Website Using Weebly, would be a good complement to this course.
