Visual Storytelling, with Daniela Molnar
In partnership with Caldera Arts Center's Artist-in-Residence Program
March 21, 2015
857 NW Wall Street, Bend, Oregon 97701
ABOUT THE EVENT:
Semiotics is the study of signs and symbolism in our visual culture. We encounter imagery more and faster today than at any time in the past, and everything we see contains layers of symbolism. This workshop gives participants the tools to recognize and understand the layers of meaning behind what you see on the surface, look at the implications of semiotics for visual culture, and how they create a foundation for visual storytelling, giving images the power of a story.
