Winter 2019-20 Photography Program

This class is an exploration of what it means to take a picture as a way of exploring the visual world. Photography encourages planning and presentation skills, allows children to display their potential through creativity, explores innovation and expression of ideas, thoughts and feelings as well as stimulates children to develop their own ideas on design.

We will be exploring the key role light plays in making pictures and establishing a feeling.
