Wolf Willow Studio
9 Spruce Centre SW
For 10 -13 year olds
The 5 day camp will be held the week of July 29th. It will run from 9 am – 4pm from Monday through Friday. This particular camp is for 10 -13 year olds. I am thrilled to announce the camp will take place at Wolf Willow Studio in the Spruce Cliff area. Wolf Willow is owned by a dear friend Michelena Bamford who is a renowned mosaic artist. The beautiful space is full of positive energy and will be a perfect hub for our camp. The art studio is a short walk from some nature areas so we will be sure to go on photo walks on a couple of our days. There is also a park right across from the street so we will have a great combination of indoor and outdoor time.
In the course, we will cover lots of ground. My goal is for your kids to be comfortably moving in manual mode on their cameras. I believe the best way to learn photography is hands-on, so there will be lots of time to practice the new concepts we will learn and discuss together. I bring in lots of different ways to learn: slideshows, games, examples, challenges, discussions, critiques, and some methods I probably haven’t even thought up yet! Together, we will be talking lots about frame composition, creative techniques, aperture, shutter speeds, ISO and lots more… all while expressing ourselves with this beautiful medium of digital film. The participants will come out of the camp with the confidence and skills to work their camera as well as matted prints, art projects featuring their images and a folder of their digital images that will be sent your way.
I will be joined by another lovely young lady, Alecia, for the week. I strongly believe in the power of displaying our kids work so Alecia will be working with your kids photographs to create stunning art pieces. She is in the process of completing her education degree at the University of Calgary and has told me how grateful she is to be pursuing a life practice wherein she can be inspired by the young people of this world. She has run art camps and programs at Wolf Willow Studio in years past and I am super excited for her to be part of our camp!!
At the end of the camp, we will be showing off our work in a Photo Gala on the Friday afternoon.
A camera which has manual mode is required. A DSLR is recommended but not necessary. Lunch will need to be provided by yourselves (not included in the camp). And the most important requirements; an open mind, positive attitude and desire to learn!!
