What’s Goin’ On!

Student Photography Exhibit at the Kerrytown Concert House — Light, Color, & Design in Spain — In November & December, the eleven students that traveled to Spain on this 18-day study abroad experience exhibited their finest works from this study abroad class at the Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor. In case you missed the exhibit, the web gallery can be viewed here.

¡Spain 2018! This eighteen-day course offers unparalleled opportunities to live and travel in Spain, and to see creatively while studying photography and design. Inspired by the people and charm of one of the world’s oldest, most influential cultures, students learn to develop their photographic vision to breathe meaning and metaphor into images. Students experience full Spanish language and culture contact, visit locations ranging from Roman ruins to castle towers, and study visual art that ranges from Paleolithic cave paintings to avant-garde museum exhibits. Daily class & field sessions feature assignments rooted in the practice of color theory, design, lighting, and gestalt.
