Book now

Summer 2019 sees an exciting time for Stills as we welcome the photography of Cindy Sherman onto our gallery walls. To accompany the exhibition, we are offering the unique opportunity for you to immerse yourself in the work and develop your own practice through two Sherman inspired Summer School courses.

Taught by established practicing artists this is a rare chance to explore the exhibition and develop your own photographic response all under one roof.

Course 1, Constructing Identities: Film Stills to Selfies
Monday 8th – Friday 12th July 2019 11am – 4pm

This week-long course offers five full days of learning, experimentation and production. You’ll make full use of Stills’ production facilities, shooting on analogue and digital, printing in the darkroom, editing with our industry standard software, all under the expert tuition of not one, but two, practicing photographic artists. With Sherman as your muse, expect a rich exploration into the world of self-portraiture.
Perfect for those with little to no experience but a love of the medium as well as those with a bit more experience.

Course 2, The Staged Photograph
Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2019 11am – 5pm

Immerse yourself in a Cindy Sherman inspired weekend with photographic artist Katy Hundertmark. Using the ‘world as a stage’ you will refresh digital camera handling skills, use studio lighting and explore narratives within a constructed set.
Perfect for those with basic photography skills who are looking to expand their repertoire.
