Creating a personal narrative: This two-part workshop will explore how artists use photography to create a personal narrative. By using the exhibition as a touchstone to explore thematic and compositional strategies, attendees will practice methods that push beyond the selfie and into the territory of personal vision.

Instructor: Suzanne E. Szucs

Suzanne is an artist, writer and educator living and working in Rochester, MN. A recipient of numerous grants and awards, she has shown her work widely and teaches in the Art + Design department at Rochester Community and Technical College.
