The Conceptual Portrait is designed to introduce participants to techniques and approaches to developing portraits that illustrate the artist’s intention and aesthetic sensibilities. 

Led by artist Laura Moore, participants will be introduced to and have the opportunity to discuss ideas relevant to historical and contemporary conceptual portraiture such as Anonymity, Self-Expression, Performance, Appropriation and Beauty.  Classes include in-depth analyses of both historical and contemporary images as well as artists practicing in the genre. Participants will receive an introduction to concept development and have the opportunity to discuss and develop individual projects during course. 

The Conceptual Portrait includes a practical assignment and opportunities to discuss work in progress. 

This course is for those who wish to explore the photographic portrait more deeply in their practice and interrogate its construction and meanings.

This course runs at the same time, every week over 5 weeks with a maximum class size of 8 participants.
