Photography Age 8-15

Children will learn to take better photos using basic composition skills. They will also learn basic history and techniques of photography and get to practise their  photography skills.  No prior photography knowledge is required. We'll start with the basics and have fun with all of our projects. While not a requirement, having some sort of camera (digital, a phone with a camera, disposable, etc) will allow the children to take part in all the activities.  The course is run by Maria V Kaz, a branding and events photographer who is passionate about art, books, film and photography.

Children will learn about comics and cartoon history and how they have been used as tools for storytelling and communication over the years.  They’ll look at basic anatomy and character design and how to fit this into stories.  Storytelling including layout and structure, scripting and lettering and colouring are also covered.  Using the skills gathered, students will work on their own comic strip and produce a complete 8-12 page comic.
