AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

TewksRoundLogo_edited.png

Whittemore - Community, Culture & Conservation is excited to be partnering with the Tewksbury Township School District and the Board of Education, in providing After-School programming for the 2021-22 Academic year for both OTS & TES, to be held on school grounds right after school.

Our programs will have a nature and wellness theme, enriching students on the importance of conservation, the natural beauty available in our own backyard (schoolyard), the importance of being outdoors, while embracing the community in which we live, all the while having fun! Our focus is for the children to be outdoors as much as possible while enjoying themselves and taking the skills learned and using them at home. We look forward to educating your students.

The Art of Seeing!
Grades 6-8, Wednesdays 2:35-3:35
with Photographer Sandy Ross

This will not be a portrait class, nor a class in how to use your camera. It will essentially be an introductory photography class, but the emphasis will be on learning what makes a good photograph and how we might develop new ways of seeing. 

 

Our usual approach to taking photographs is to "snap" our digital cameras (iPhones) at something we find interesting at the moment. By learning to think ahead, to look more carefully at our surroundings, and consider composition in our photographic frames, we may just grow some unexpected skills from our experimentation. When we slow down and learn to use some basic principles of art, we can find ourselves in a new position of gaining more control over what we end up with in our images. And - we can have lots of fun in the process - discovering things about ourselves and our reaction to the physical world - in ways that may surprise us! 

 

Guest Lecturer - May 25th, World Traveler & Photographer Chris McCormack will join our group and talk about photographing his worldly experiences!

Note: we will be going outside no matter what the weather, please dress appropriately.

Fee: Includes all materials. A digital camera or iPhone is needed for this class.
