Photography: Alternative Processes -History, Invention and New Techniques at The Noyes Museum of Art


An interdisciplinary workshop exploring the creative practice of historic and alternative process photography. Participants will learn about the history of photography, new inventions and materials as well as an overview of different photographic techniques. Participants will be encouraged to take part in discussions and hands-on demonstrations, with a strong emphasis on how photography can be used in the classroom.

This workshop includes examples of non-traditional techniques in photography and ways to incorporate new technologies into historical processes. For grade 1-12 educators and all levels of artists, the workshop is designed for art teachers but can be useful for teachers across other disciplines including history and science. Use simple and accessible processes that can be taught to students easily and inexpensively. No experience in art making is necessary.

Workshop topics will include:
- Lecture and visual presentation on the history of photography, from invention to digital imaging
- The science, materials and techniques of alternative processes
- Practical demonstrations of alternative photographic techniques by the instructor
- Using examples of notable photographs through history to teach
- Hands-on studio work in basic alternative processes useful for all students

Materials needed: notebook and pencil, gloves and apron
Optional materials: Smaller objects (flowers, glass jars, jewelry, etc., anything with an interesting shape) for the hands-on exercises
