Proud to be...

Who are you and what are you proud of? How can you show this in a photo? During the workshop Proud to be… you learn how to make a portrait that really tells something about you.

About the workshop

Everyone goes home with a unique photo of themselves. The object you bring with you to the workshop will personalize your picture even more.

This workshop starts at school with a preparatory lesson given by your own teacher. Through assignments, you are introduced to photography and discover about the things you are proud of. After an interactive guided tour of 30 minutes in the museum, you and your classmates take photos of each other in our education classroom. You will make a portrait with your personal belonging and show the class what makes you proud. At the end of the workshop, all the results will be presented on a big screen and jointly discussed.
