Me and My World: Photo journey workshop KS1 to KS2

Thu, 30th Mar, 2017

We are inviting schools to come and enjoy our next exhibition Mother River by Yan Wang Preston. The exhibition is a photographic odyssey along the entire length of the Yangtze, often known as China’s Mother River.

The workshop takes pupils on an adventure along the river exploring different seasons and landscapes, from urban to rural and natural to manmade. In the first part of the workshop, pupils will take part in discussions exploring the environment, where we live today and how it makes us who we are.

We will then work together to create a photo journey that spans the entire length of the gallery! Pupils will make paper boats and use a range of images and words to explore what we might see along an imaginary river. Using a digital camera, pupils will document their journey as is grows. At the end of the session they will use film editing software to make a short digital animation of their journey. Their work will be projected in the gallery in the final part of the session, and can be sent to teachers on request.
