How abstract can a landscape become while remaining a landscape? Discover answers to this question while exploring the abstraction of nature in the Garden. Moving beyond the reality of flowers and trees as we see them with our eyes, the Garden provides many opportunities to explore nature in abstract forms. Starting with the “real,” participants will identify and examine different and unexpected ways of visualizing natural subjects through photography. This class is best for students who are comfortable with their cameras or the camera on their phones. A review and critique of student work is an integral part of the class; technical information will be addressed as it arises.
