Exploring Photography (Grades 3–5)
Registration deadline: September 16
Explore a variety of photographic processes, from old to new, and from handmade to digital! Use the Museum’s Collection, and capture images on a downtown photo scavenger hunt, to inspire your own projects. Create a Polaroid photo collage, a hand-tinted watercolor photograph, and cyanotypes.
- Email Kelly Baisley, school & family programs manager, two digital images in advance of the workshop. Details will be sent ahead of time to registered participants.
- Youth Studio is held indoors and outdoors. If the weather is cooperating, we’ll do most art activities outside in the courtyard. In the event of inclement weather or the necessity of studio resources, we’ll move into the Museum’s Education Center.
- Space is limited to small groups of up to eight students; face coverings and social distancing are required.
Youth Studio is the Museum’s studio art program for children and teens! Students experiment and explore a variety of media and techniques through classes and workshops led by visiting artists and Museum educators. Classes meet 2–4 weeks and are designed for a deeper exploration of a specific media; workshops meet 3–5 hours and introduce a new medium or process. All materials are provided by the Museum.

The Museum is committed to making our programs accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means. With support from the Walnut Cove Members Association, we are able to provide a limited amount of financial aid to help students who could not otherwise afford to enroll in our programs.
