Fall 2019 Session: tentative dates: Wednesdays + Saturdays / November 2-December 21
FreshLens Chicago - High School Photography Program
The FreshLens Chicago photography program meets twice a week (one weekday afternoon + Saturdays) for seven weeks in classroom and lab settings. The program is fully funded through donations and there is no cost for participating students. Students are required to qualify for free lunch. Students will need to provide FreshLens with a letter indicating that they qualify for free lunch on school letterhead signed by a school official.
During the classroom portion, students will learn fundamentals of composition and digital camera operation. Students will complete assignments both in and out of class. In the lab module, students receive instruction in Adobe Lightroom editing software as well as learning the fundamentals of printing.
All students will have the opportunity to exhibit their work.
The program is also designed to foster personal growth by building leadership and teamwork skills and by helping students learn to accept responsibility. Each student does a self-assessment and examines the qualities of a successful individual.
Students successfully completing the program will be given a gently used camera to keep as their own.
FreshLens Chicago meets at Richard Stromberg’s Chicago Photography Classes (RSCPC) at 4001 N. Ravenswood Ave. Chicago, IL.
Due to the CPS strike, applications will remain open. Prospective students will fill out an application and attend an informational meeting. Finalists for the program will be interviewed.
