Children's Classes

Photography for Kids (Ages 8-12)


with Brook Hewitt

Calendar Oct 5, 2019 at 1 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Photography is a great exercise in problem solving. Any child can benefit and use the same skill set in other areas of life. The students mainly learn on DSLR Canon cameras but we will study and explore different types of photography and cameras as well such as polaroid, film and “point and shoot.” All gear is provided for each student, but students are welcome to bring cameras from home.  All skill levels are welcome.

Calendar Sep 9, 2019 at 5 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Introduction to the potter’s wheel for teens, ages 13-18 only.  Basic throwing skills will be taught, as well as design and decorative techniques for functional pottery forms.

Painting and Drawing: Projects will include use of graphite, colored pencils, crayons, pastels, watercolors, tempura and more.

Mixed Media: Projects will include sculpture and weaving. 

Clay: Campers will use air dry clay to create various clay projects.
