Semester Program kick off: DIY Photography
Artpace’s Semester Program launched today with 11 middle school students at Washington Irving Academy, who will work for two months with an artist to make a public art installation for their school. The medium? Photography, and it’s DIY. Students will build their own film cameras from a kit of more than 40 parts.
We asked students why they wanted to be a part of this experience, and they said:
- “…because I like my ideas to come true.”
- “I love looking at art projects.”
- “…because I like to see what the plot of a photograph is.”
- “I like to create things out of my head.”
Looking forward to a semester of creativity; can’t wait to see these young artists’ ideas come true.
