Introduction to Photography Teacher Summer School 2018
Are you looking for a stimulating summer teaching opportunity—one that will allow you to be part of a growing program, teach a dynamic and exceptional curriculum, work with other talented educators, and work on a beautiful campus that is rich in history and technology?
Lakeside School’s Summer School Programs is currently recruiting for an Introduction to Photography teacher. This course is designed to expose students to the creative and technical aspects of photography while establishing a foundation in the visual arts. Students work with both black and white film and digital cameras, building skills behind the camera, in the darkroom, and with digital imagining tools. Students will gain a solid grounding in camera controls and printmaking while learning to appreciate the role that composition, design, color and light play in the visual arts. Students will have an opportunity to exhibit and showcase their photographs and learn to use digital tools for archiving and sharing their artwork. Film and printing supplies are provided by the school. Some cameras may be available for students to borrow, although they may prefer their own cameras. This is a graded course, and students will earn one year of credit for the course. There will be about three hours of homework assigned each day. The position will be part time. The class will run June 25 – August 3, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., with one additional hour per day of designated office hours. There will be a mandatory orientation on Thursday, June 21.
