USING STREET PHOTOGRAPHY AS A METHOD OF STORYTELLING WHILE EXPLORING THE CITY OF LOWELL.
This course will explore street photography as a method of storytelling while walking throughout the city of Lowell. Students will learn different methods of composition and the basics of digital color editing while learning how to create images that are cohesive. Students will be encouraged to develop their own photo story project and will be encouraged to document: architecture, landscapes, and portraits.
Students will study the works of contemporary photographers and keep an image bank/journal of their favorite photographers. Students' work will be assessed weekly through group discussions and they will be required to produce one photoshoot in this class through developing a mood board, scouting and choosing a location, and coordinating with a “model” of their choice (friend or family member).

Due to new health and safety concerns, we ask that students come to class with a mask. We will provide hand sanitizer and wipe down working areas with disinfectant before and after class. Shields and limited class sizes will also be implemented during this time. We ask that if your child or a household family member does not feel well to be open and communicate with us about your child missing class as a precautionary measure. Restaurant rules apply for snacks and drinks... students will be allowed to eat and drink at their work space but must wear masks when traveling through the studio.
We reserve the right to cancel any classes that do not fill.
