Developing Your Vision: a photographic exploration
Jun 14 - 18, 2021
For children with an interest in the visual world around them, a camera may be the best tool to capture that curiosity. This workshop is a photographic exploration filled with lessons and activities aimed to help students understand photography’s ability to frame not just a composition, but a human story. The course covers the history of image-making, practicing cyanotype processes and works up to today’s digital technologies. Taking advantage of the Anderson Ranch campus, students create unique photographs and prints that may spark a lifetime of image making.
