Porthmeor Art Collective - Active Looking Photography
Mixed Media - Materials included
For young artists aged 13-16, this group helps young people connect with their creativity and get to know contemporary art practices.
For the first time, we have a Photography workshop for you! Join Ruth Purdy and her team from Mitber to explore the M A G I C of photography. Get better at taking photos with a smartphone, take part in some fun challenges and produce your photography. Print 3 of your photographs to take home and have your work submitted for exhibition in 2023.
The photo challenges will revolve around the concept of M A G I C -Mindful, Active, Generous, Interested, Connected. Active looking in the world around us can help us live happier lives and help us be truly present in the moment.
We are happy to continue offering limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply firstname.lastname@example.org.
