How does a blossom look through a lens?
How can I draw with light?
How do I feel in front of the camera, and behind it?
In two- to four-day workshops, young participants between 8 and 13 take a playful approach to different artistic questions, schooling the photographic eye of those taking part. Participants learn new techniques and let their own creativity flourish.
Beam me up
Where are we headed?
Young artists embark on an imaginary voyage, making and photographing collages. They then photograph projections of the collages and become part of the work they themselves have created.
Dark Room of Wonders
Photographing without a camera
With a wave of a wand, shapes and objects appear on the treated photopaper. The participants’ images appear on paper as if by magic through the careful use of light from the enlarger and a dip in the developer bath.
Good enough to eat!
Can you imagine a hat made from spaghetti, earrings created from parsley, or a necklace fashioned out of radishes? Young participants choose which ingredients and food to use in a photoshoot.
What makes a good photograph?
After taking a look at Linda McCartney’s photographs, young participants examine the composition and contents of Polaroids and finish by recreating their favorite image. Before—after!
And it does move!
Kneading, arranging, drawing—nonstop experimentation is the motto of this workshop for anyone who wants to set things in motion and try out different animation techniques. Here, participants bring their own figures to life in custom-made environments.
