Preserving Legacy with Jamel Shabazz (Day 1)
In Hands On: Photography students will participate in a project that documents their family and communities in real and imaginative ways. In this two-part workshop, photographer and educator Jamel Shabazz will share his work, discuss his art-making philosophy, and offer practical and technical direction for taking photos. Shabazz will guide students in a project that preserves the legacy of what is important to them through photography.
This workshop will culminate in the display of student photography on The Studio Museum in Harlem's website. Teenagers who have their own digital camera are encouraged to participate.
Hands On is free, and designed especially for high school-aged teens. Students must attend both workshop days in order to have their final work featured on the Museum's website.
Youth Programs are supported by Colgate-Palmolive; Dubose and Dorothy Heyward Memorial Fund, New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency; and the Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Trust
