"Imagine." Workshop for Teachers
"Imagine." Workshop for Teachers

Imagine is a workshop designed for teachers of all grade levels and is based on one of the courses offered in this year’s A Scuola di Guggenheim program.

Participants will imagine abstract figures and representations that will then take shape on photographic paper using cutouts, shapes, and marks. Following this, we will learn about photographic processing by experimenting with positives and negatives and the movement of objects in a camera obscura. The workshop will introduce techniques such as rayography and chemigraphy, used to create black-and-white images using light and chemicals. The workshop draws inspiration from the processes used in the Man Ray’s photographs and the Alberto Burri and Ellsworth Kelly’s paintings on view in the museum.

The workshop is designed and led by Claudia Corrent.

  • The workshop takes place at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and lasts two hours.
  • Participation is free. Registration is required from April 8 at 7 am on this page. Places are limited.
  • Participants will receive a participation certificate.
