This course will help you to improve your photography while living under the limitations of social distancing and self-isolation. Constraints have always been a creative challenge to artists. Now, more than ever, we need artists to help make sense of the world.

The photographers in this course will learn how to improve their work even if they’re forced to stay inside for days at a time. Weekly assignments will have you using your camera to explore your home and neighbourhood with a new eye.

Your work will be encouragingly critiqued and, whatever you level of expertise, you will be challenged to find new ways of expressing yourself with your camera. You will share your work online with your classmates, as we support each other in these difficult times.

"The more constraints one imposes, the more one frees one’s self of the chains that shackle the spirit."
Igor Stravinsky

“All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”
Jorge Luis Borges
