(Recommended for students ages 5–18)
During this interactive workshop, students learn about the history of photography, explore various types of photographs, and experiment with the photo-making process by looking at and discussing works of art from the exhibitions Big Pictures and Marie Cosindas: Instant Color. Gallery teachers facilitate guided-looking activities, inquiry-based conversations about the photographs, and student-centered gallery activities. Students receive instructions and strategies for composing their own photographs and have the opportunity to practice their skills during the workshop. Students should bring their own digital cameras (siblings may share a camera).
Homeschool educators are encouraged to register for the parents’ portion of the workshop, which takes place at the museum while students are participating in their program. During the parents’ session, participants work with Amon Carter educators to discover innovative ways to incorporate artwork into their home curriculum.
Space is limited; preregistration and prepayment are required for registration to be complete: $7 for children of members, $10 for children of nonmembers, and free for parents. Instructional materials related to the workshop, including digital images, are free for those who attend the parent session. For more information or to register, call 817.989.5030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students must be five years old or older to attend the program, and they will be divided into groups by age. Adults will be separated from children but are welcome to bring infants or toddlers with them to the parents’ training.
