Artists in the Gardens Workshops: Photography
Use art to hone your observation skills and express yourself! Art can communicate everything from how you are feeling to the close relationship between a caterpillar and its host plant. This season, focus on the interactions between plants and animals as we explore a new medium each week. We'll explore habitats, uncover wildlife and identify plants while learning about art and making our own. Classes will include time to investigate the garden, make connections, create art and share work with the group. Join us for the full series or sign up for individual workshops. All materials provided unless otherwise noted. Programs for children ages 9-12.
Document details of the world around you using an artful eye and optical science. Play with the results of changing aperture, shutter speed and other camera settings as you practice using photography for documentation and artistic expression.
Bring your own digital camera; any kind is great, from cell phones to DSLRs.
