Explore how photographic portraiture can be used to express ourselves in learning settings.

Drawing on her extensive experience of working in primary, secondary and community settings, Marysa Dowling will lead you through activities which move away from traditional forms of portraiture and social media trends. She’ll introduce tools and techniques which empower children and young people to represent themselves. 

We'll also discuss how these approaches to photography could be starting points for projects and cross curricular learning.


This session is open to Islington educators, with a focus on Art and Design teachers and leads.

Book via Eventbrite
