William Knipscher and John Borstel were both established members of Photoworks faculty, when they decided to advance their educations by pursuing MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degrees. They chose contrasting paths: Will enrolled in Baltimore’s Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) — one of the region’s elite studio programs — for a discipline-specific focus on photography. John chose the low-residency Interdisciplinary Arts Degree Program at Vermont’s Goddard College, a pioneer in progressive education. They will discuss their recent experiences in these programs and share work from their graduate portfolios.
October 10 – December 12, 2013, Thursdays, 7:30-9:00 PM

Photoworks is a vibrant and unique resource for photographers. Our philosophy is simple: Creative dialogue with fellow photographers, an intimate learning environment, and outstanding faculty are the ingredients for creative growth. Through diverse programming – including weekly classes, weekend workshops, open darkrooms, digital labs, monthly critique sessions, lectures, and regularly changing gallery exhibits — members of the Photoworks community find common ground with other professional and student photographers and cultivate their technical skills and artistic vision.
Distinguished by its program of small classes taught by a faculty of leading commercial and fine art photographers who are committed teachers and mentors, Photoworks is housed in a brand new studio equipped for black & white film development and printing, a digital classroom, a studio area and an exhibition gallery. Photoworks operates in cooperation with the Glen Echo Partnership for Arts and Culture Inc.
