Get your creativity flowing! Low Res returns to its full, in-person format. Over eight 6-hour sessions we will collectively work through experimental group activities to hone and sharply define the intention and delivery of our creative voices through photography.
The key focus of this program will be developing our advanced visual literacy, redefining the way we approach photography. We will have group discussions, critiques, creative experiments, writing exercises, field trips and more. This year the course will be co-lead by artists Darren Rigo and Zinnia Naqvi on an alternating schedule.
Low Res is a great opportunity for emerging artists to push the boundaries of their practice, build understanding and develop connections in the Toronto art community with a small, supportive group of peers.
