- Hey all - at a friend's request, I am going to be teaching a photography
class this fall. I'm still working on details. Here is what I do know at
1. We'll meet in person once a month. I'm leaning towards Fridays. I was
thinking afternoon but I keep forgetting about the little ones I watch. It
may have to be the AM due to nap times there.
2. We will be meeting either at the church (Crossroads Bible) or my house.
If we meet at my house, we may be able to do afternoons - we'll see. The
meeting time should be only about an hour - but may be longer if we have
3. There will be no cost to me for the class but there will be out-of-pocket
costs - mainly for printing photos to discuss at class time. We'll be
putting together a portfolio and possibly a photo display as final project.
4. I'm leaning towards this being for children 10 & up. I may include Nate
(who's only 8) but this would be an exception rather than a norm. I'm still
not sure I'll include those younger than 10 (including Nate).
5. I will limit class size. I'm thinking no more than 10 with possibly 15
tops. Right now I have five names.
6. I have yet to figure out if this will be a one semester or a two semester
7. I don't plan on giving tests. ;-)
8. I will be teaching the history of photography, how photos have gone from
tin types up to digital, how film prints were made, etc. I have a pinhole
camera we'll play with. We'll also work with a free on-line photo editing
program called Picnik.
9. Students will need access to a digital camera for class assignments. It
does not have to be SLR camera but it does need to be digital.
If you think this may be something one of your children might be interested
in, just let me know & I'll put them on "the list." Please feel free to
pass this on to anyone not on the CBC Homeschoolers Yahoo group, but the
class size IS limited & I will give preference to those in the Yahoo group
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
