10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Young participants will explore group portraiture and have the opportunity to compose and shoot their own group photographs. Drawing on American artist Sharon Lockhart’s art practice, kids will re-enact famous group portraits both historical and contemporary and learn how a photograph constructs a story. Blurring the lines between documentary and fiction, children will also write their own fictional stories based on these famous photographs and recreate and photograph their own version of the originals. This workshop will teach a brief history of group portraiture, how to use a digital still camera and tripod, scriptwriting, improvised performance, and how to direct and compose a group photo. Led by artist Sarah Febbraro.
