Art Immersion at Baltimore’s Walters Museum - Create Art from Art

Art Immersion at Baltimore’s Walters Museum - Create Art from Art

Immerse yourself in art than spans 7,000 years, from 5,000 BCE to the 21st Century, at the Walters Art Museum nestled in the elegant neighborhood of Mt. Vernon in Baltimore. 

In the mid 1800’s William Walters began to open his grand mansion to show off his ever-growing art collection. Today the museum houses more than 36,000 art objects for us to explore, photograph and become inspired.

This class will creatively take pictures of museum art as an interpretive representation to transform it to become its own work of art. 

Students will learn to use and practice essential photography techniques such controlling depth of field, influencing composition with foreground/background layering, changing shutter speed for effective zoom effects, practicing closeup techniques, and experimenting with wide/tele perspective as interpretive methods.

All cameras are welcome however we suggest a camera with a zoom lens and controls to adjust aperture and shutter speed.

No tripods, no flash

Admission to this museum is free.

Class limit: 8

 

What People Are Saying About Michael

"He is excellent with adult learners — great deal of patience, humor, and kindness. I would love to take another class with him!" 

"Michael is fantastic. So articulate, instructive, and patient!! We all were saying at the end of the class how amazing the afternoon had been!"

"I was blown away by the class!!! Much more then I expected it to be! I can’t wait to take more! I loved the way he explained things and the order he did stuff in made lots of sense. You can tell he is a seasoned teacher, and an experienced photographer who also loves it! Can’t wait to squeeze more of his classes into my schedule...."

“I thought the class was a good mix of class time with history, concepts, guidance, how-to-approach and then practice time on the streets of DC. Michael provided very good direction as well as hands-on tutoring in the field. Very happy with the class.”

“I wanted to write to say how much I enjoyed the class. My first experience going around with a photographer seeing what catches his eye and it was so great you were pointing out pictures I could get. So relaxing!”

“Michael's presentation was comprehensive and very instructive.  He provided excellent suggestions for finding opportunities while in the field, including how to use background, shadows, gestures, etc.”
