Thank you Atlanta Insider for including us on your list of the 22 Best Atlanta Homeschool Days and Programs. We are truly honored! 

About: Our Earth Art classes include elements of earth science, art history, artistic skill and technique building, while getting to use quality art materials and natural items hand selected straight from the outdoors. Our focus is on learning where our materials are coming from and how to use them to create, classical art concepts and techniques, and the process of creating art from the heart.



Summer Session: Photography and Printmaking
Now offering sibling discounts!!

Wednesday, June 7th- Intro. to Photography
Wednesday, June 21st- Studio Photography & Lighting 
Wednesday, July 12th- Solar Printing
Wednesday, July 26th- Potato Prints

For our shortened summer session, we'll be focusing on introducing students to photography and printmaking. This session will include: potato printing and solar printing. Digital, Polaroid, slide, and moving images. We'll also set up a photography studio complete with a background and lights, will be learning about natural light and artificial lighting, and will be setting up our own still life images to capture!

Our Earth Art instructors are professional photographers/artists and educators, with art degrees in photography, printmaking, fine art, and design. they'll be bringing in both vintage and contemporary photography and print equipment for the students to get hands-on with.

Class 1: Intro. to Photography (6/7)
For our first class of the summer session, we'll be introducing photography sharing various types of camera equipment from digital to film, and instant/Polaroid to tin types. We'll discuss still vs. moving images (how movies in the pre-digital era were made and the science behind it), and some of the earth metals and elements needed for photo chemistry. Students will also get hands-on time to explore and investigate vintage photographic materials and equipment, comparing and contrasting those methods with our current digital world, and will get to take some test photographs on various cameras. 

Class 2: Studio Photography (6/21) FULL
Today our students will be doing something totally different from any other kids class- they will get to be real photographers and work through the process of shooting in a studio! They'll see what goes into setting up a studio setting (complete with background stands and background, and various lighting modifiers), will learn about natural vs. artificial lighting, and will then be taking their own studio shots. 
*Please have your child choose their favorite stuffed animal or doll to bring to class today, as that will be their subjects of these special studio portraits. We'll be shooting digital today, so once the images are downloaded, they will be emailed out to participants.
