Not only do photographers need to learn by doing but it also helps to see the work of exceptional noted photography artists. Cogswell Introduction to Photography students had the chance to meet both goals when they recently took part in a field trip to the San Jose Museum of Art.
Students visited the museum to see two exhibits in particular – Rising Dragon: Contemporary Chinese Photography and Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage. While they could only take photos in the Museum lobby, the trip was an valuable part of the learning process.
“It’s important for students to see real works of art and participate in the rich arts and cultural programs in our area,” said Karen Keister, faculty.
After checking out the exhibits, some of the students stayed in the downtown area to take photographs for their latest class project.
