Visual Storytelling Workshop with Wendall Harrington
What is an image, and how do we create imagery and design to tell stories? Led by award-winning projection designer and educator Wendall Harrington, this two-session, hands-on, workshop will help you better understand how we communicate with non-verbal symbols to express ideas and emotions in support of realistic and abstract narratives.
WE HAVE RECEIVED FUNDING TO MAKE THIS COURSE FREE. REQUIRED THAT YOU ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS. Donations are gratefully accepted.
