Kids in every age love to photograph! Support them and keep them constructively busy. They will learn to see, to search, to observe. You will open doors for them to a unique visual world.
Our first photo course for kids –10 day photo challenge! In this online Photo Club we’ve put together our 4 years experience of running after school photo clubs for kids at various schools, our 8 years experience with running online classes – and well – experience of being parents at home with kids.
How it works:
Every morning, for 10 days, you will receive by email your materials according to the photo theme (prepared in an easy-to-understand way with pictures as examples) to learn something new and interesting plus daily “assignment”. It can be parent’s or kid’s email – up to your decision.
Children will have a full day to take images based on a given theme/subject/challenge. Children can work on it individually, with siblings or together as a family! Family members are included in one subscription 🙂
Share your work with us by the evening – please pick 2 – 3 photos only, try to pick your best work!
Repeat it for the next 10 days and have fun! 🙂
We won’t be providing individual feedback to each photo, but we will be be discussing generally achievements and encourage children to work on their next assignments. We might pick and share few images online, as an example of the work – totally anonymous of course.
How will assignments look like:
Daily photo challenge will be a short two-three pages description on the topic with a few examples made by us and/or our students in the previous photo clubs. Eventually we might also prepare a video to explain the topic and technique. Each assignment will also include the description of any required materials (no worries, easy stuff we usually carry at home such as paper, markers, kitchen utensils, some Lego figures etc…)
