This is my second year of running Summer kids photography workshop.
I know how much all the kids like the screen time.
I like to make this time more productive and educational.
And I know with these classes kids get quite the great mix of all that.
Is the kids photography workshop a good fit for your child?
First of all, I don’t know a child who would be absolutely mad for giving him/her a phone and the permission to play with it.
Second of all, this workshop is going to show the kids new ways for using their creativity. You will be amazed how interesting their point of view is.
Like, back in April my older daughter (9 years old) entered her very short (and silly) video to Poppy Jasper International Film Festival. The video was played in front of an audience at the Gavilan College in Gilroy. It was really a great day for her! I have to mention that all the clips for the video were made on my iPhone and the entire video was put together on an iPad.
My daughter is absolutely fluent with iMovie (iPad or iPhone version). She doesn’t have much access to games and silly apps. However, if she mentions making a video or editing pictures I tend to say YES to the time in front of a mobile device.
This workshop is going to teach kids the basic knowledge about photography. All of that without the boring stuff necessary to master DSLR cameras.
I’ve seen kids snapping killer black and white images after going through this workshop. Something they were not even considering before.
If you want your kid to be able to look around and see the beauty in a leaf or an old fence… well, this workshop is the way to go about it.
This workshop is for kids who are curious, love outdoors and art.
If your kid is not into art, this is a great introduction to this subject.
During my own battles with self-esteem and so many different issues I’ve learned that photography has been an amazing addition to the tools I’ve developed through the years.
Being able to turn my smartphone into a tool that helps me to express myself feels good. I can no longer say I’m bored if I have my phone with working camera and a few editing apps available.
I’m a strong believer that the more we practice being creative the easier it comes to us. So, if you want your little one to gain great skills but also practice their creativity, secure their spot today!
…and, let’s get creative together!
P.S (I added the possibility to do individual classes instead of the entire workshop)
