Contemplative Photography - Ways of Nature

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Contemplative Photography - Ways of Nature

Course Code: ARTS2228

In the Eastern/Zen contemplative traditions nature has been a way to spiritual insight. The way of the seasons reflects the seasons of our life. Instruction introduces a contemplative approach to nature and will include topics such as contemplative landscape, flowers and weeds, Eastern/Zen aesthetics, Impressionism, and visual haiku. Practice haiku - contemplative poetry - and consider examples of Eastern aesthetics such rock gardens, brush painting, and more. Your images will display the same resonance and form as these contemplative arts: simplicity, space and purity. Develop a natural appreciation and serenity through this practice. Previous photographic experience is not necessary. There are on-line methods of sharing your images and receiving feedback following the course. You are required to bring a digital camera with manual capacity.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
