Katharine Kreisher on the importance and impact of the Bright Hill Legacy Program Young Collector’s Club:

“Viewing art at museums and galleries helps people experience original art and understand the many ways that artists see the world around them. If viewers write about art, their understanding deepens. Art lovers often become collectors of art because they want to live with the images at home where they can spend time looking and thinking and understanding them more fully. The Young Collectors Club of Bright Hill provides young people with the opportunity to own original art and perhaps begin a life of collecting.”

Katharine Kreisher is Professor of Art at Hartwick College where she has been teaching printmaking and photography since 1982. She is a member of the Board of Directors at Bright Hill Press and Literary Center. Katharine is a co-creator of the Young Collector’s Club, with Bertha Rogers and executive director Beatrice Georgalidis.

TAUGHT BY NICK KELSH
Ages 12-18, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm, 5 days

Bright Hill offers its first ever “Artistic Storytelling through iPhone Photography” program with Nick Kelsh, July 26 – 30, 2021, 8:30 am – 2:30 pm, daily, led by master teaching artist and world renowned photographer Nick Kelsh. The program is limited to 16 students.

The workshop instructor is photographer Nick Kelsh, who’s authored/photographed 9 books, taught thousands of amateur photographers in his online photography courses and live workshops, and has been featured multiple times on Oprah and The Today Show. Nick lives in Treadwell, NY.

We all know that the best camera is the one that’s with you! We’re constantly taking iPhone photos to share the many worlds we live in with the people we love, but in this workshop we’ll stretch technically, creatively and artistically so your photography becomes a life-enriching channel for self-expression. This workshop will help you take your photos from commonplace snaps to extraordinary images that stand out and reveal something about you and how you relate to your world.

 We’ll start off with the fundamental concepts of basic photography, then delve into the features and capabilities of the iPhone camera specifically,

We’ll cover portraits, self-portraits, group shots, landscape and nature photography, plus storytelling through multiple images. Finally, we’ll consider the value of words and pictures together to create an important third effect when sharing photographs.

The photo assignments will get you outside exploring the natural world in summertime—good for you mentally and physically—and the iPhone is a perfect tool for documenting our beautiful planet. The workshop will increase your understanding of your iPhone camera technically and creatively, resulting in memorable, meaningful photographs. The skills you acquire in this workshop will keep giving for a lifetime, regardless of the photographic hardware that may come our way, and your improved photography skills can add value to many activities and projects you’ll pursue in school and extracurricular activities. This workshop will enrich your body and soul, build your confidence, spark your imagination, hone your artistic eye and, above all, be fun.

We’ll have daily lessons, online videos, photo-assignments, personalized instructor feedback from Nick, Q&A sessions, live office hours, daily review of class assignment photos, streamed virtual exhibit for parents on final day.

The work created during the workshop will be exhibited in The Word and Image Gallery at Bright Hill and will be available for purchase. On the final day of the workshop, we will stream the exhibit on zoom for parents and students.

Workshop Cost: Thanks to the generous support of our donors and funders, the registration workshop cost to you is only $160 for tri-county students and $250 to out of area students.

Full Scholarships will be awarded to Students of Delaware Academy and Treadwell residents through the Abraham Kellogg Fund.
