Lines, shapes, colors, texture, and angles!

Home / After School / Lines, shapes, colors, texture, and angles!

Mentor Artists Michelle Gutierrez worked with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at Lynwood Elementary school, in their aftershool time to create beautiful images learning the basics of photography. They learned the five basic techniques of composition which are: lines, shapes, colors, texture, and angles. Sixty students divided into two classes of one hour each to learn how to use digital cameras, upload their images, manipulate and archive them in Iphoto, and later-create a slide show presenting their work. They also learned how to create powerpoint presentations, using words to accompany their images on the Mac program Keynote.
The photos taken by the students will be used on the school’s website as a way to promote their school in addition to highlighting the hard work of the youth. Great job Lynwood students!
