Video Art

Tessa Siddle
Monday–Thursday, June 15- July 10

9:30am-12:30pm | Studio 8

No prerequisite. A personal video camera is helpful, but not necessary.

Make video-based art as you learn about a wide range of methods and styles, such as; documentary, performance, and experimental video. In-class demonstrations will focus on shooting with specialized cameras, capturing sound on microphones, using green-screen technology, and editing using software such as Adobe Premiere. Lectures, discussions, and screenings of historical and contemporary video-artists will inspire and ground your practice. Students enrolled in this course are expected to work both independently and collaboratively to define their own projects. The class will conclude with a presentation of your video through a screening, installation, and/or performance.

“I loved how there was so much to work with and there was so much equipment and help that we had access to.”
