Parent/Child Photography Workshop

Photograms from previous students

Photograms from previous students

These workshops are designed for children 5-10 years old to introduce them to photographic concepts and for parents to spend a fun afternoon making pictures with their kids.  Each workshop will focus on different photographic techniques, so these classes can be taken separately or as a series.  Topics include making photograms, using pinhole cameras, exploring portraiture and landscape. Everyone will leave with some finished prints to display! No photographic experience is necessary for parent or child.  Children must be accompanied by an adult for the entire workshop as this age group will need one-on-one help in order to successfully participate. Select one of these classes or register for more at a discounted rate. Each class individually is $75. You can purchase both classes for $150

Registration is for one parent and one child. Please include the name and age of your child when you register for the class

INSTRUCTOR: Victoria Heilweil

Sec 1: Lensless Photography

DATE: Sec 1: Sun, 10a-12p, Oct 23 **Sorry. This class has been cancelled due to low enrollment**

This workshop is focused on making photographs without a traditional camera.  We will do photograms and use pinhole cameras to create images on black and white photo paper to be developed in the darkroom.   These unique techniques are both historical and contemporary, and you child and you will experience the magic of the traditional darkroom.

BRING: Most items will be supplied but feel free to bring in small objects like plants, marbles, toys, etc. more info on Photograms can be found here

Sec 2: Digital Photography:

DATE:  Sec 2: Sat, 10a-12p, Nov 19

This workshop is focused on easy techniques for taking great portraits and landscapes with your digital camera.  We will look at some examples, and then go on a shooting field trip in the neighborhood.  Children and adults will be photographing each other in this workshop.  The class concludes in the digital lab with printing the best photos of everyone from the day.
