Annie Boudreau

This Outdoor Photography Camp introduces basic photography skills such as composition, lighting, exposure, equipment and self-discovery. The course will predominantly be outdoors, and centered on capturing the natural world and portraits. Throughout the week your child will work towards building a portfolio of the new discoveries they have captured. Documenting their progress will help your child gain confidence in their work, all while forming a connection with nature. In addition, we will make pin cameras, sun art, play games and more! These engaging activities go beyond photography; they are an effective way of promoting artistic development and new friendships!

I have been a teacher for 20 years and love kids. I’ve enjoyed being involved in summer camps because I love camp too! I’ve been quilting, crocheting, cross-stitching, embroidering and felting for many, many hours of my life… and I can’t wait to get the kids « hooked »

Textile arts, week 8

Kay Kerman

As a teenager I loved to weave both traditional patterns and abstract imaginative designs on a small table or handmade loom and sell them from a kiosk in Old Montreal in the summertime. Covering pillows with embroidered designs and stitching fabric on clothes to add some flair was another interest. Now as an adult, I still love to create, using lots of colour and beautiful textiles
