Thanks Belinda!

The long time director of the international programs here at Washington University, Belinda Lee, will be leaving the position next week to pursue work outside WU. I've worked with Belinda as a fellow faculty who taught drawing in Florence and later as the director. She was one of those administrators that you could count on and was true to her word. You never needed to follow up on Belinda, she just got the job done. In addition to being an administrator, she is also a terrific artists and teacher. She will be missed here at the school house and I wish her great success in her new venture.

My 17 year old Florence www site has been updated!

The web site I set up for my Florence class in 1996 (yes, I know the design is showing its age!) has been updated with new information for the 2014 workshop. It's filled with information about the workshop and living in Florence.

Please remember this is not the official site of the Florence program, if your daddy is a lawyer, go file a lawsuit someplace else.

Class for SP 2014 (cancelled administratively)

City as Studio: Florence, Italy
Spring 2014 ??
Wednesday 6-9 pm & March 9-15, 2014

A unique photography course that uses one of the most vibrant european art metropolis as both a subject and a sounding board for image making.  The traditions of documentary and street photography will be our primary guide. The first half of this class will serve as both conceptual and technical primer leading up to an intense week of field work Florence, Italy, taking place during Spring Break. Upon return to the St Louis campus, the class will edit the work produced in the field and present printed photographic works in an exhibition at the Weitman Gallery.

Class will be open to all, no pre-requisites. Class counts toward photo minor.

Lab Fee: TBA
