Month: February  2021

Participant Level: Intermediate 

The course will consist of three two-hour sessions ran over one week with additional one-to-one appointments available with Arteh. The first session will be a joint zoom group call and will be a discussion-based around the students current understanding of black and white portraiture and story telling. Arteh will then give some assignments, for the students to work on over the next few days.

The second session will be two days later, and a review and further discussion will be held, followed by the second round of assignments.

The students will have one day to work on the second assignment, and then the final group discussion will happen on the last day (Friday).

Arteh will offer “office hours” for one on one chats and help in the form of 30-minute slots on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 1pm and 3pm – please give at least 24hrs notice if you intend to book one of these in!

Classes will be limited to 6 students at a time in order to make sure that everyone receives a good amount of personal attention and feedback. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
