College For Kids, part 1
For two weeks at the beginning of August, St. Louis Community College at Meramec was transformed into the College for Kids. Offering K-8 classes for gifted students, the courses ranged dramatically from chess instruction to animal demonstrations. As far as I could tell, I was the only educator representing photography this year, which explained the roughly 64 kids that came through my classroom. My three classes were Alternative Photography (1st week), Funography (2nd week), and The Photographic Series (2nd week). The experience was completely exhausting, but fun nonetheless.

For this course, students learned to produced Anthotypes (berry prints), Lumen Prints, Cyanotypes, and Acrylic Image Transfers. Ambitious you say? Not for these kids…
