Crowlees Photography Project - Day 1

Today was the first day of the Photography Project at Crowlees J&I School, Mirfield as part of the Kirklees Arts4All Scheme. The day began with a brief introduction and then all 60 Y5 children took part in an 'extended drawing' activity where they explored "beyond the frame" of photographs that had been captured throughout their school. They produced some amazing drawings, some of which are shared below:

For the rest of the day I was working with small groups of children to explore the school through creative photography using mobile devices such as iPod Touchs, iPhones and iPads, capturing intriguing images from all kinds of angles. 

Children also began processing their images through a variety of apps.

Throughout the week the children are looking to create a library of images that will feature in a book, along with drawings and creative writing that they produce, inspired by their own photography. They have already captured lots of images and have ideas for many more! YR
