Digital Photography and Photoshop
For children 6 and up
With Gwen Bullock
Students need their own simple point-and shoot camera and USB for loading and storing images.
Section 1: Five Mondays, 4:15 - 5:30 April 23, April 30, May 7, May 14, May 21
We will take each day as a lesson in framing the photograph, recognizing its attributes, and using the camera to tell a story. The story continues in photoshop, as students learn to reframe, transform and combine their images on the screen. We will have daily critiques, building on the individual talents of the students to produce a small portfolio of images. This class is based on a variety of photographic assignments, emphasizing self-expression and basic art concepts and mastery of toolsd for self expression in the medium of digital photo. It is never too early to get our kids behind the camera. Class size limited to 6 students
Section 2: Five Tuesdays, 4:15 - 5:30 April 24, May 1, May 8, May 15, May 22
Students experienced with a simple camera or beginners in Photoshop will work on increasingly complicated projects, with opportunities to add poetry, drawings and animation to creations in Photoshop. Students are encouraged to slow down and examine their own photography for composition, self-expression and the development of a personal aesthtic. Class size limited to 6 students
This class will take place both at the Abovoagogo Studio and at the computer lab at Village at Ithaca.
