PROJECT KIDS & CAMERAS:
My photography program for kids integrates visual literacy with traditional literacy, to offer learners an opportunity to express themselves through both image and the written word. Our fun, participatory, experiential workshops encourage creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and community building in the classroom – key elements of an innovation mindset!
WHAT KIDS LEARN:
In my workshops, I encourage kids to photograph and write about themselves, their families, and their communities. We explore what is most unique about ourselves through a series of creative photography assignments that explore concepts of composition, timing, perspective, and artistic expression. We also print and share our photos using portable printers, go on fun photo walks, and explore the work of iconic photographers through books and slideshow presentations.
