Design4Kids Photography & Design Workshop

Written by stuestler on June 9th, 2009

Just a week and a day to the beginning of the 2009 Design4Kids workshop in Santiago de Atitlan, Guatemala. This year’s “dream team” of volunteer instructors has been assembled and is ready to go.

 

Started by FotoKids founder Nancy McGirr, this is the second Design4Kids workshop and the third workshop with the young people in Santiago. They continue to learn and develop their photography and graphic design talents with the purpose of operating their own design studio in the Atitlan area.

 

As in the past, the group will receive a real assignment from an actual client, and they will determine the client’s needs, design the concept and create the project. The team of volunteers is made up of commercial artists, graphic designers and photographers who will guide them along in the process.

 

The kids will be polishing their skills in design, photography and Photoshop, and along the way, they’ll develop and expand their creative talents, and learn possibility thinking that will teach them new ways of looking at themselves, the world and their own potential.
