Columbia art students Lindsey Conboy ’20, Ella Conway ’20 and Elena Ferrari ’19 recently completed an 8-week photography course at The Sage College of Albany. The highly competitive program Masterclass only accepted 15 high school students from the Capital Region.
The art course was taught by Sage College professor Melinda McDaniel who heads the Art + Extended Media Program. Students learned how to work with alternative cameras, processed film in the darkroom, created digital negatives and learned several different printing options.
At the end of the course, the students installed their own final show and engaged in college-level critiques. The exhibit took place at Rathbone Hall’s Little Gallery on the Sage campus earlier this month.
