Photograms is the title of a one-day workshop designed for children going to elementary school (age 9- 12) whose goal is to provide participants with the basics of photography based on practical work. We will go back to the very beginnings of photography – where everything has started, what is light and how it shapes the photos, how does the process of developing photos in the dark chamber look like, etc. If you are interested in making a photo without using a classic camera but instead use a shoe box or you are interested in the use of everyday items to create abstract images – this is the right workshop for your child.
The workshop will last for 3 hours and will focus on making photograms – a photographic image made without using the camera, only by placing the object directly on photo-sensitive material such as photo paper (containing silver-sensitive beads). By illuminating the photo paper and the content (objects) on it, under controlled conditions, we get a negative outline of the subject. The result of this process is the shadow of objects that vary in tone depending on the transparency of the selected objects.
At the end of the workshop, the time machine will bring your kids back to the present and they will be able to present their artworks to their parents and bring them home together with the experiences and knowledge gathered on this wonderful journey!
Duration: Saturday 15.09.2018, from 11:00 to 14:00, MSU Zagreb
You can sign up your child via e-mail – [email protected] – with the title in the e-mail subject “Photograms”.
