Writing with Light (August 12 – August 16)
August 12 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$300.00
(ALL DAY: for ages 12-14) The word photography literally means “writing with light.” Combine the magic of film-based photography with the power of your words. Using a 35mm film camera (provided) and a pen and notebook, you will explore the uniqueness of the Neighborhood of the Arts. There will be opportunities to photograph and write about outdoor art such as wall murals and sculptures, the interior and exterior details of the many historic buildings, and the gardens and natural areas. You will also take portraits of each other in these environments, and write about what you see and imagine. Using the community darkroom at Flower City Arts Center, you will make your own black-and-white prints, use objects and letters to create photograms, and creatively combine your words with photography. Mornings will be spent at Writers & Books digging deep into the craft of writing, and afternoons will be spent photographing around the Neighborhood of the Arts or in the darkroom at the Flower City Arts Center. All excursions will be walking-distance from Writers & Books.
