The “Teaching Teens the Art of Light Photography Kit” was contributed to the Library as Incubator Project by Michael Cherry, Teen Programming Specialist at the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (Evansville, IN).
Click the link below to download the PDF kit and to read Michael’s explanation of how light photography works, and why it works so well with teens:
This would be a great program to do during Teen Tech Week and it can also be an opportunity for some outreach and community building: if you aren’t a photographer, or don’t have a photographer on staff who can help to teach teens, reach out to local arts organizations or university art departments and connect with a photographer who can.
It’s a great community service, and you can re-pay the favor by displaying the artist’s work at the library or asking them to collaborate on a display of photography books and materials to go along with the program.
