Kids With Cameras to launch Summer 2019 workshops

By on June 25, 2019

Kids With Cameras, a Knutsford-based after school club, has launched the dates for their Summer 2019 workshops.

The week of outdoor workshops will teach children photography skills, in particular how to use a DSLR camera, as well as life skills, such as team-building, creative thinking and building confidence.

The workshops will be led by Julie Whelan, a professional photographer who specialises in family, children and pet portraits, as well as event photography and professional headshots.

The week of photography workshops is set to begin on 29th July 2019.  It is a great opportunity for children aged 8-13 to learn about photography and associated skills, as well as meet like minded children. The two hour sessions will run in the mornings from Monday – Friday. All of the classes will have a different curriculum, and an all important biscuit and drink break will be included too.

Julie, a part-time assistant at Bexton Primary School, said, “The curious children on my family photo shoots and my own children’s interest made me realise how much kids love photography and are quick to learn. Having started Kids With Cameras a few years ago, I really cherish how much children love letting their creativity run wild when they have a camera in their hands. These workshops are a great way for children to build a variety of vital life skills whilst having fun, and also to give parents a free couple of hours over the hectic summer holidays!”

The workshop is open to all children aged 8 – 13, regardless of past experience. Classes are priced at £25 per child.
