“Each one of us has a story to tell, and the power of imagery can not only tell it in a vibrant way that reflects each individual’s truth, but it is also an insightful tool to connect with our emotions, our story, ourselves and ultimately our surroundings in a way that is unique and undeniable.” (from the 100Cameras “Where You Are” curriculum)
The past year has been one of the most challenging our children have lived through. What a perfect time to equip them with another way to express what they see in the world around them and how they feel about it. This class will give children the opportunity to pair a tangible tool they already have available to them (camera/phone) with the ever-developing tool of personal perspective. While learning basic photography skills, students will be examining the details of their immediate environment more closely through the lens and learning to connect that with their own stories. Students will also experiment with editing.
Material: digital camera of any kind (but preferable a smart phone or tablet) and a gmail account. Pen and notebook will be provided.
