- Day 1:
- Basic visual theories

- photography creation practice
- Day 2 :
- self expression (bring 1 or more photos or videos of your room
- a journey through the history of painting
- let’s create with ideas in mind
- playing with the senses
- now I can see what you see
Prerequisites: None at all! Come as you are. Bring a camera, a tablet or a mobile photo.
Lunch: Parents should provide their children with a packed lunch. We’ll provide healthy snacks
Outcomes: We expect our students to CREATE some items and use the newly extended ideas and vocabulary to describe their own creations and those of others in the course. A mix of listening and hands-on interactive experience will help the participants IDENTIFY some key factors that will determine why “I definitely don’t see what you see.”
Distance Learning: This course has no distance-learning component and workshop sessions are in-person in Hamilton only.
This 2-day kid’s workshop is taught by Pepa Torre. Pepa comes from Andalucia, in the south of Spain, once the domain of Islam and referred to as Al-Andalus. She is the Chair of the Waikato Hispano Latino Cultural Trust for which she has put great effort in implementing the communication strategy to be able to reach more members and achieve their mission of connecting people on a greater scale. She holds a BA in Audiovisual Communication and an MA in Photography as well as minor titles in areas such as Business and Education. She created PTS Foto Fun back in 2008, a photography/videography studio focused on finding the inner self of each individual, creating a comfortable environment where one could express emotions and feel unique. She won first place in a National Photography Award held by Hewlett Packard and delivered numerous art exhibitions mostly sown throughout Europe. Everything she does is meant to feed her passion and learn more about human behaviour, concentrating on the idea of “prejudice” and “what is the same and different at the same time,” stressing the positive side of diversity. Pepa has also been a Flamenco music and dance teacher and performer since 2016, the same year when she started teaching Spanish privately in a variety of contexts. Nowadays you can find her working at the Waikato Settlement Centre and you can hear her hosting a radio program on Free FM called “¿Quiénes somos?” (“Who are we?”), based on the stories of everyday people from her Hispanic and Latin communities. Pepa also currently teaches Spanish for EarthDiverse.
