Junior Future Creatives

Our Junior Future Creatives program has grown over a decade. Head of Child and Teen Education Creative Director, Julia Massey Stewart, is very intent on making certain your children and teens are guided by one amazing principle of our governing philosophy – learning is fun! We often receive comments from parents saying that their son or daughter’s course time is the highlight of their week. That’s pretty cool feedback and fabulous to hear!

All our tutors are Enhanced CRB Certified and our non-discriminatory teaching methods are completely focused on your child’s successful learning path. Additionally, as members of the International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA), our unique offering is that in addition to the practical experience of using cameras, lenses and computers we will encourage your son or daughter to engage in a process involving how they see, observe, makes decisions and communicate. Once again, our Parent and Student Feedback page is testament to the commitment we make to your child learning and growing.

 
 

PHOTOGRAPHY + CAMERA BASICS

Term | Half-Term | Easter


The fun begins at learning how to make images. Automation in mobile phones makes everyone a budding photographer – that’s the elephant in the room. Our students want more than a point and shoot experience and we deliver that. How do I photograph my dog in the dark? Why are my pictures not sharp? Do you think this is a good picture? In Photography + Camera Skills we move away from automation and into thinking individually about making a photograph. Your child discovers the science behind the camera and light in a series of experiments through which the fundamentals of photography are revealed.

Custom times, divided over days, weeks or more: you let us know what works for you, how frequently, etc. We suggest sessions of 1-1.5 hours for most younger students.

MAKING STORIES THROUGH VISUAL LITERACY

Term | Half-Term | Easter


From fake news to infographics, staged Instagram selfies to viral images of lawyers with cat avatars our children are growing up in an environment where the image continues to creep into our information forming networks. Understanding how reading images can affect how we feel or interpret society around us is a necessary part of our information gathering process. Moving from a text literate to a visual literate society is the next iteration in expanding our growth as communicators. Our brand of visual literacy courses for junior creatives simply explores the act of seeing. Unlike the photography courses this is about deep seeing into photographs already made. Through games, puzzles and reading picture practice the course intends to have 8 – 11 year olds observe, feedback and expand on visuals placed in front of them in order to improve on observational and image reading skills and bring to their attention the influencing factors pictures can make.
