Program Description
Why do some photographs intrigue us more than others? In this interdisciplinary program, middle school students are introduced to the science and art behind this extremely popular form of visual communication. Accompanying materials include in-program activity guides as well as teaching extensions for getting students launched on their own photographic projects. What Makes a Good Photograph? Explore what makes an interesting photograph by viewing the works of contemporary and historical photographers in the CMA collection. Using an activity sheet to discover how focus, framing, point of view, and subject matter can influence meaning in a photograph, students will lay the foundation for their own creative view through the camera.
