Contemporary Portraiture Moves Online

© Molly Lynch

How to conduct a photography class online with students on different continents and time zones? PCA Photography faculty Matthew Avignone has reframed his Contemporary Portraiture class to suit the new context of distance learning. The class just had a successful first meeting over Zoom, and they will continue to video conference as a group, touch base one on one, and share writings and notes through a blog. Students will also create their own blogs with their work to share with their classmates.
