Saturday, April 6

Using the exhibition The Roaming Eye: International Street Photography from the Ramer Collection as inspiration, participants will learn techniques for teaching photography in the classroom.

Following a docent-led tour of the special exhibition educators will choose between one of two presentations: for teachers with younger students, early childhood educator, Melissa Etcheverry, will share lesson plans and ideas that include an introduction to camera use, how to practice framing and cropping still life photography, using landscape and architectural photography with collage as illustrations for a story, and exploring the use of light and shadow in photography.

For teachers with older students, professor for the Art-Science Fusion Program at UC Davis, Terry Nathan, will explore the notion of photographic content and form, and how to interpret a photograph using examples of street and other photography from master photographers, including examples of photo exercises that can be used in the classroom.

Educators will attend one of the two sessions, but will be provided the materials from both presentations to take back to their classrooms.
