Move beyond selfies and party pics to take next-level photographs.  If you don’t have a cell phone camera, don’t worry—any digital camera will do (please no film).  This workshop introduces participants to techniques of photography, including composition, color, perspective, content, communication, and concept—plus it will be fun!  Photographs will be taken indoors and outdoors—come prepared for an active day (appropriate shoes and clothes please).  Items will be provided for your use, but feel free to bring your own.  Feel free to think outside the box, items could include:  action figures, stuffed animals, dolls, collectables, sports and other memorabilia, hot wheels, flowers, masks, costume jewelry (nothing precious please—museum cannot be held responsible for broken or lost items).

This is the second in a series of MGMoA Maker Workshops that are designed to reach tweens and teens (ages 11-18), as well as adventurous adults.  The Maker Workshops series are also designed to be inter-generational fun, allowing families to experience new and exciting activities together.
