Kids Camera Club CITY Workshop (Ages 6 – 10)
April 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$31.68
Photography is a great art form to introduce kids to: it isn’t messy, fantastic results can be achieved from day one, and the results will be treasured for years to come.
Join us for our Kids Camera Club Workshop which will teach your children how to master camera settings, creatively engage with subjects and play with lighting and composition.
This time we are stepping away from nature, and embarking on an urban adventure!
Starting at the green sculpture in Forrest Place, we will wind our way through some amazing laneways, down the Terrace and to Elizabeth Quay, taking photos of new and old landmarks, people, murals and other unexpected things along the way! A great and safe way to introduce children to the wonders the city holds.
Visual literacy is incredibly important in our current world. It is our goal to encourage children to look beyond the surface of an image, to understand its context and meaning by getting a chance to develop their own.
