Art (Photography) at Eggbuckland Community College
Students will, of course, learn the workings of the camera and how to take good quality photographs. Photography is however far more than this. Within the first few lessons, students will be making their own cameras and mastering darkroom skills, carrying out detailed research analysing and evaluating contemporary and historical photographers and their work. Students will also be producing shoots in response to research, learning about image manipulation with ICT and how to use ICT as a tool.Students will be expected to complete 4 hours of independent study and research each week. Lessons will begin with a number of workshops studying how the camera works, how to use the darkroom and how to manipulate images using ICT. All these workshops will be complimented by detailed research into contemporary and historical Photographers and Art movements. As the course develops students will be expected to take increasing responsibility for the direction of their work culminating in Year 13 when students will enjoy a greater degree of independence.
