One Place, One Face 1/18/2019, 1 PM to 4 PM, $390

THE PLACE: This experience will start with a subject-specific 30mn photo lecture with Stéphanie de Rouge. We will then take you on a 2 hour tour of one of the world’s largest public art galleries: the New York City subway system. Led by underground art experts Justin Rivers and Aaron Asis, you will discover works of art from Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Godard, Tom Otterness and Mary Miss just to name a few. Photographer Stephanie de Rouge will add to the tour by discreetly guiding you into live portrait making.

THE FACE: After the tour, you will have the privilege to meet with Mary Miss, the artist behind the 14th St. Union Square station art installation, and photograph her. Mary is a world-renowned American sculptor, considered to be a pioneer of site specific art, and her work has been shown in the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA P.S. 1, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, and the Tate Gallery in London.

Schedule:

  • 1 PM: Students meet Stephanie de Rouge for a 30 minute class on portrait photography where they will learn her signature three secrets of making a great portrait in less than 5 minutes, as well as specific techniques for the two types of portraits they will take: “Live Portraits” and “Posed Portraits”.
