T.R. Paul Academy Students Use FRCC’s Community Studio to Create Photography Exhibition
Photography students from the T.R. Paul Academy of Arts & Knowledge who have been working with the Community Studio at Front Range Community College will display their creations Friday, May 2, at the Community Creative Center in Fort Collins.
The exhibition is part of the First Friday Gallery Walk and will be on display from 6 to 9 p.m. at the center, 200 Matthews St. The Community Creative Center is the Historic Carnegie Building in Library Park.
During an eight-week study unit, T.R. Paul students have been learning the history of photography along with the fun and complexity of making their own cameras to create pinhole photographs. Students working with photographer Laura Cofrin and the FRCC Art Education Methods class, use the FRCC darkroom to develop the images they created.
In addition to Cofrin, other instructors overseeing the project are Dianne Andrejasich, T.R. Paul faculty; Joy Fiordalisi Fine, FRCC student; and Cindy Burkhart, FRCC art instructor.
The FRCC Community Studio is program of the Creative Arts, Design, and Humanities Department. Community Studio provides free, short term “pop-up” contemporary art experiences for residents of all ages.
