Photography Education in Schools
Photography is a medium that breaks barriers, engages students and teaches story-telling in a democratic fashion. Children are much more exposed to technology than ever before and CPB aims to tap the potential and nurture them through its visual education program.
We are proud and excited about the start of our visual education program – the iPhoneXRPhotoCamps for schools in Chennai where experienced mentors, chosen by CPB will teach students the basics of photography such as light, composition and framing. 600+ Diverse students from Private and Public schools all over Chennai will learn Photography through the iPhone via this program. We are also expanding the program to include University students.
“Increasingly, photography is becoming one of the most accessible forms of self-expression as well as self-representation. Most kids increasingly are being introduced to photography through their parents’ phones now so we thought, why not start there. Through these phone camps, I’d like to see students go beyond the “cellphone” selfie and really explore the world around them. By starting with the basics of composition, light, framing – students will learn the building blocks of visual art. What is the background? Where do you place your subject? We are hoping to include these works in the Biennale as part of a Students’ Showcase and we invite more schools in Chennai to participate. Get in touch!”– Gayatri Nair, CPB Founding Member
