In it’s 5th fantastic year of summer camp, Shutter Bugs will have another summer full of photography and a smorgasbord of creative stimulation. With only 5 spots available per week will be focused on an array of projects to keep the hands on photography flowing. Still life, field trips, photowalks, polaroids, portraits, double exposures, collage, macrophotography and various art related projects to learn the technique and craft of using a camera. Each camper will be able to bring their own ideas to the projects and collaborate with other campers on how the projects will look and turn out. The general thought of this camp and summer camps is to give constant hands-on activity and make the camera a natural part of the art we create. Camps run from Monday through Friday, May 30th through August 5th from 9-3. Ages vary each week. On the Friday of each week, we will have a small group show to display the amazing art and photography they worked on throughout the week.
