The Kimmel Center's immense barrel vault roof of folded plate glass encloses a visually dramatic civic space and a lively indoor street scene. During our class, we'll have access to photograph performance spaces, and possibly performers in rehearsal, from unique perspectives and to shoot in areas of this spectacular building not accessible to individual visitors. Learn how to make memorable images of people, concerts and spectacular architecture while honing all your photography skills.
It is important to define your philosophy and style as a teaching artist. In this workshop, you will draft a teaching artist statement that reflects your unique point of view and the ‘product’ you will be marketing to your potential audience.
During this session, we will work through a template, give you time to draft your own statement, and then pair you up with your peers to get suggestions and feedback.
Bob chronicles the highly unusual life of Bob and his lifelong quest to become a "Great Man." Born and abandoned in the bathroom of a fast food restaurant, Bob energetically embarks on an epic journey across America and encounters inspiring generosity, crushing hardships, blissful happiness, stunning coincidences, wrong turns, lucky breaks, true love and heartbreaking loss. Along the way, Bob meets a myriad of fellow countrymen all struggling to find their own place in the hullaballoo of it all. Will Bob's real life ever be able to live up to his dream? Bob is a comedic exploration of American mythology and values, the treacherous pursuit of happiness, and discovering what it means to be truly "great."
