APA NY | Ideation to Creation

Thu 21st Mar, 2024 – 5:00pm

By APA Admin in New York

Creativity is often thought of as a bolt of lightning, a flash of inspiration, but an idea is just the start of an often long process of translating that idea into an image, a process that you can practice and get better at. Using examples from his assigned and personal work, Chris will show how he uses problem solving to build an image in layers from first spark to final image, talking not just about the how, but the why of an image and lighting.

This free event will be held in-person in the Adorama Event Space, as well as livestreamed, as part of APA-NY's new partnership with Adorama.

In Person - Free but please register in advance

42 West 18th St
NY, NY 10011
