About the Course
In this course, your youngest photo enthusiasts will be given cameras and taught to constructively play with the wonderful art of photo! They will learn basic photo techniques then be provided with themes and subjects to explore. Storytelling with photos, photo alphabet, portraiture, tricky pics and group photo experiments, drawing with light and stop motion just to let you in on a bit of our photo experience together. There is so much photo fun to be had!
I began teaching photography as a requirement to complete the MFA Fellowship program at the University of Miami and found I had a knack for it. My approach to teaching has always been a bit different from traditional thought; the most challenging part of learning art and photography is for people to find out what they're visually passionate about; from there, everything else can be learned. I want people to leave my classes with a greater appreciation for what they see. The technique will develop if you have the desire to learn.
The ART Club ga (originally MAM Youth Arts) was created as the photographic element for after school enrichment programs. Over the years, I came to realize that there are so many unique course types that children and adults alike can benefit from that have not been offered. Once offered in some of Miami's finest schools and collaborations with Panasonic, the Super Bowl Entertainment Committee and several more, I am constantly exploring ways to expand creative opportunities and passion for the arts for you and your family.
