Art Professor Receives Work Study Scholarship for Summer Workshop

06.13.2013

High Point University Professor Benita VanWinkleHIGH POINT, N.C., June 13, 2013 – Committed to her craft, Benita VanWinkle, coordinator of art education and instructor of art, was selected to attend a two week workshop at Penland this summer with nationally renowned photographers, Clarrisa Sligh and Ellen Eisenman.

The workshop, “Photography, Community and the Visual Self,” is about using photography in community, educational and social projects. VanWinkle says the workshop will help her prepare and enhance her Service Learning class in the fall, “Photography in the Community.”

“We will be learning how to photograph people and places, in a way that allows the community to be part of the artistic process,” says VanWinkle. “I am hoping to learn new ways and ideas about how to incorporate community members into our class project on High Point’s furniture industry.”

VanWinkle is an award-winning photographer who has had work exhibited around the country. Currently, she is publishing a project – 30 years in the making – of photographs of vintage movie theaters across the U.S. called “Please Remain Standing.”
