CEPA is proud to present work by our students in the 2016 Summer Camps. Animation, Darkroom and Digital Photo were offered for ages 8 to 17.
In the Darkroom Camp, students used black and white film and learned to make traditional darkroom prints. In addition they used pinhole cameras and experimented with double exposures (putting two negatives together), solarization (a process where a partially developed print is exposed to light) and cyanotypes, a process that produces beautiful blue prints on watercolor paper.
In the Digital Photography Camp they took field trips to City Hall, Canal Side and the Outer Harbor, developing their own creative photographic style while photographing our city’s architecture and waterfront views.
In the Animation Camp, students created storyboards, and using paper cutouts, photographed their stories, adding music and titles in iMovie.
You can see an exhibit of their work on view in CEPA’s Underground Gallery from September 16 to December 17, 2016. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, September 16 from 7:00 to 10:00.
