The Saturdays Workshops: ‘Visual Games’
For the tenth consecutive year, the Fundación Canal and PHotoESPAÑA offer The Saturday Workshops that, held in the gardens of the foundation, allow children and young adults to explore and experiment with photography.
This year, participants will enjoy a ludic visual experience in which they will learn to express sensations and alter reality. Each workshop has a two-hour duration and is lead by specialised instructors.
Age: 5-8 years. The objective of this workshop is to play with perspectives and scales, in addition to creating optical effects with mirrors to deceive the eye and discover the capacity of photography to transform reality.
Age: 9-12 years. This group will learn about visual language resources including different planes, points of view, and the foundations of composition that they will discover by exploring their surroundings in a
photographic treasure hunt, which consists in making images that reveal different sensations and constructing a narrative unity.
Age: 13-15 years. Games of chance will offer the older group the possibility of relating words and images, and discovering the produced effects.
