Splash is an interactive Art Photography learning program designed for children. We have been developing our Art Photography Workshops for Children for some time. We have written and published a children’s workshop work book and presentations to integrate as a package designed, primarily, with yr 6 (UK) school age children in mind.
Whilst we have had this project under development we have had the unswerving support of Mrs Helen Williams of Kirk Merrington Primary School where we been trailing the workshops with the students.
The workshops have been delivered with the help of Mrs Christine Ruskin, a local artist & secretary of The Little Green Hut Art Group. Many thanks go to Helen and Christine for all their hard work. Thank You.
The workshops have been delivered free of charge to school age children within the school and we intend to continue to offer these Art Photography Workshops free in the future. We support and fund this project through sales of our Ltd Edition Prints and other products. If you feel you would like to offer your support and furnish your home or office with a Ltd Edition Print or use our greetings cards to send to your friends you can do se on-line. Check out our growing collections of prints here......
We use SPLASH as a device to help children understand the process of photography. Each letter of SPLASH acts as a reminder in our workbook (copyright Studio Pookini 2012) which is , at present, used by the team delivering the workshops. We plan to publish the workbook and teachers notes along with presentations software in the future.
Please browse the gallery to see some our student “SPLASH Photographer” workshop images. We also have a gallery of images of our 2011 students receiving their certificates, badges and portfolio discs at an exhibition of their work. There were also prizes for the best images voted by their peers, their teaching staff and others. It was lovely to see the students work so hard, to see the expressions on their faces when they saw what they could achieve and to see how proud they were to display their work to the public. Well Done SPLASH Photographers!
