About - MosArts will be hosting Little Hot Shots in Term 1 2014. The program teaches the basics of digital photography and camera handling to kids aged 8-15 yrs. The worskhops are very hands-on and practical, they explore creative techniques and individual expression. As well as learning camera handing, compositional and exposure techniques, participants will be encouraged to develop their own personal project outside of class time. Feedback from these projects will be provided throughout the workshops, and participants will be encouraged to continue with project throughout the year and become involved in an exhibition later on in the year.
The workshops are run in 2 age groups; 8-11 and 11-16 yrs. We run small size workshops after school over an 5 week duration, with a maximum of 8 per class.
Mini-Shots (7-11 yrs) - Mini Shots will focus primarily on learning composition and finding an individual project to work on, less emphasis will be placed on technical elements of the camera, more emphasis on fun photography activities such as photography
Teen-Shots (11-16yrs) - This program will involve trying to explore some of the manual controls on a camera such as Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Student will start developing their own personal projects.
