Photography Course for Kids

Let’s plan something creative and educational this Fall for our children. If your child enjoys art, dancing, documenting moments or simply wants to explore a new creative outlet, this hands-on course will offer students a greater understanding of digital photography.  We will create photographic images that convey their own unique and artistic ideas.  The course will encourage students to explore all types of photography; including, portraits, still life, landscapes, photojournalism, architecture, etc.  Emphasis in this class is on the development of the students’ self-expression. 

12 week course taught by Natalie Licini, owner of Je Revele Fine Art Photography outdoors in Westfield, NJ. This course is offered for two groups ages 8-12 and ages 13-17. We have an optional indoor 17 foot by 24 foot space for inclement weather days, which will be sanitized multiple times each day. The indoor space is optional. Inclement days may be rescheduled.

Address: 800 Hillside Avenue, Westfield, NJ 07090.

COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: Classes are held with a maximum of 8 students per class. We practice social distancing and all students and myself wear face coverings. We will take students temperatures using a no touch thermometer start of each class. More safety precautions here: https://www.jerevele.com/protocols/
