Dyckman Farmhouse: What We See Matters! – Storytelling Through Photography

What We See Matters! – Storytelling Through Photography

April 5th, 2024; 4PM-6:30PM


Register here

Facilitated by Christopher Lopez

Embrace your inner artist with this photography workshop at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum! Students will learn about photography and how to use the provided cameras. Afterward, the group will explore Inwood and take photographs following a selected theme. One photograph will be selected from each student to be exhibited at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum!

Students will learn to understand photographic form and use related vocabulary to support their analyses of photographs, as well as articulate the process of creating meaning through form, content, and context. Students will expand their visual literacy by learning to look, and by decoding images reviewed in class and encoding these ideas into their own original photographs outside of class in the surrounding area. The students will be asked to see the Dyckman community as a principal subject. Through direct involvement with the camera they will be asked to create unique visual images that articulate the varied aesthetics of the community.

Luego, el grupo explorará Inwood y tomará fotografías siguiendo un tema seleccionado. ¡Se seleccionará una fotografía de cada estudiante para ser exhibida en el Museo Dyckman Farmhouse! Los estudiantes aprenderán a comprender la forma fotográfica y usar vocabulario relacionado para apoyar sus análisis de fotografías, así como a articular el proceso de creación de significado a través de la forma, el contenido y el contexto. Los estudiantes ampliarán su comprensión aprendiendo a mirar y decodificando imágenes revisadas en clase y codificando estas ideas en sus propias fotografías originales fuera de clase en

los alrededores. Se les pedirá a los estudiantes que vean a la comunidad de Dyckman como un tema principal. A través de la participación directa con la cámara, se les pedirá que creen imágenes visuales únicas que articulen la estética variada de la comunidad.
