In this workshop with 2021–22 Happy and Bob Doran Connecticut Artist in Residence Julia Rooney, participants are invited to photograph each other in front of a large-scale painting by the artist that functions as a green screen. They may then “key out” the background and replace it with scenic imagery of their choosing, creating unique photographic representations of themselves in alternate environments.
Sidewalk Studio, set up on Chapel Street in front of the Yale University Art Gallery, is an outdoor program that fosters impromptu art making on a drop-in basis. Generously sponsored by the Gallery’s Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund, this is the first of a two-part workshop with Julia Rooney, organized in collaboration with Artspace New Haven. Join us for the second program, Green Screen on the Green, on August 11 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm on the New Haven Green. All are welcome.
