[ FIELD TRIP PROGRAMMING ]
1. Exhibition Tour of Photoville
Led by professional artists and curators, students will view and discuss a diverse group of photography exhibitions ranging in style and subject matter. Students will explore the artists’ processes and discuss strategies for visual storytelling.
2. Youth Photographers Seminar
Young people from local photography programs will give short presentations on their work. Students attending Photoville can see and hear how these young photographers became interested in visual arts, learn about their goals, and find out how to pursue photography for themselves.
3. Photography and Storytelling Lesson Plans
Teachers attending the Photoville education program will receive lesson plans and images to bring back for classroom use. The lessons will draw from the images and ideas students encounter at Photoville.
Photoville is located in Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, on the corners of Water Street and New Dock Street. It is directly under the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO and is bordered by Jane’s Carousel and St. Ann’s Warehouse.
Completely free for your students to attend! You will need to arrange for transportation and for your students to bring a bag lunch. We’ll have a full day of activities lined up!
HOW TO REGISTER
Space is limited so registration is first-come, first-served. Please complete the signup form by Aug 19 and we will be in touch to confirm your class’ participation.
