SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17: 11 AM – 2 PM
As part of this free workshop, students will receive all the components needed to craft their own camera obscura—the device that shaped photography and filmmaking as we know it today! Join us on Zoom on October 17th, when we’ll build this simple yet mesmerizing device and learn more about its origins and historical implications from artist and filmmaker Charlotte Pryce.
We have space for 10 participants located anywhere in North America … first come, first served!
Support for Care Package is made possible by the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.
