–Learn about the darkroom–procedures and technology (enlargers, chemistry, paper, exposure)
–Play with design — positive and negative space, opacity, designing within the frame
–Work individually to design 2 photograms.
–Work in a group of two or three, with the assistance of your teacher or TA, to create one large format (16×20 inch) photogram with both design and meaning. Options:
- A life-sized portrait (head) of one of your group members or another person using found objects
- A “map” or diagram that shows a personal destination or the path to get there
- A political (or propaganda) poster that makes a statement about war, the refugee crisis, global warming, education reform, bullying, free music or another newsworthy topic that matters to you
