Visual Literacy 101 with Calvin Collins

October 3, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki C101 Add to Calendar

We are immersed, more than any other time throughout history, in visual language, yet few of us stop to consider exactly how it functions. Visual Literacy 101 is for anyone interested in developing his or her ability to unlock the meaning of images. Learning to see, read and navigate visual images gives us advantages in work and life, as well as intensifying our engagement with art and the greater world around us.

Whether you’re already working in the visual arts or you’re simply looking to enrich your visual vocabulary, Visual Literacy 101 is a workshop designed to help you get the most out of your visual experience. How can (y)our ideas, emotions and concepts be expressed through visual form? Let Visual Literacy 101 be a point of departure, enhancing your ability to really see what you’re looking at.

Calvin Collins is a visual artist based in Honolulu. He holds a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from University of Hawai’i at Manoa. Though primarily a mixed media painter, he also has a background in drawing, photography and design. He has taught courses in the visual arts throughout the UH system and is currently a design instructor at Kapiolani Community College. A sampling of his work can be seen at
