Workshop Day One

The first day of the workshop has grades 7-9 students visit the John Tizya Centre from 11-3 to learn camera, shoot and process their first roll of film! We use the morning to set up our great workshop space among the exhibits. We take a short walk along the river before an orientaion of the project with two adults who will participate: Mary Jane Moses and Vicky Josie! YAY!

Paolo explains the camera to the group

Teacher Ms Sharma shares her class: Grade 7 students, Madison, Candace and Jocelyn and Grade 9 students, Arron and Percilla. We also have a visited participant, Kohn!

It's a beautiful day to take the shooting outside!
