Lesson series


to be scheduled

This personal, one-on-one time with KPA creator, Janet,  encourages kids to explore different composition techniques to express their amazing ideas and create effective images!  How we arrange different elements in our photograph is key to creating a great image.  The decisions we make about what to include and exclude, how to draw our eye to what we want to emphasize and creating balance in our image make a huge difference in what our end photo looks like.   By the end of the course, kids will have a number of composition tools they can choose from to tell their photographic story.

As time is one-on-one, there will be plenty of discussion of photos and composition techniques in detail.
