PHOTOGRAPHY FUNDAMENTALS - Grades 7th-12th      

Teacher: Jacquie Palazzolo

Fall Semester:  This is an entry level class designed to introduce the fundamentals of photography.  We will spend each week covering a new topic and by the end of the semester, your student will have been exposed to, and practiced necessary elements to photograph most situations in which your student would typically use a camera.  The aim (pun intended) of Introduction to Photography is to help the student accomplish more than just “shoot” pictures, but, instead, to be an “intentional image maker”.  My goal in this class is to help the student learn how to utilize simple techniques to transform their photography from snapshots to memorable keepsakes.  Students should be ready, able, and willing to listen and participate in class and practice the techniques taught in the form of weekly homework assignments.  

Spring:  We will dive into the foundational knowledge obtained in the first semester. This semester requires more participation and outside class-time practice.   We will review and learn more details about a topic each week and then practice the skills necessary to move closer to mastering that skill.  Each week will consist of a photography assignment and reading associated with the lessons given.  We will plan at least one photography field trip (on a non-HELP) day to practice the skills we are learning.  Class fees cover an excellent text as well as a professionally printed/matted image to be displayed in the Art Show on Performance Night.  The student will keep the print after each show, having a piece of their own artwork to display in your home!   

Require Materials:  Camera & Tripod (Any type)

Annual Tuition $240 ($120/$120)

Annual Class Fee: $80 ($40/$40)
