Had to step in for Ed Watts, from Whitworth Art Gallery, as he wasn’t very well. So I dashed down to Manchester Art Gallery to meet the students on the Snap Judgement photography course as they were meeting there to view The First Cut exhibition. What an amazing group of disparate people! I had advertised the course via Twitter, the weacreative site, email and posters in libraries and community centres. This has been successful in attracting a group of diverse individuals who enjoy each other’s company very much. They all had nothing but words of praise for Ed’s course content and teaching methods. Thank you Ed.
So, this has got me thinking… I would like this group of students to continue learning together in the new year and I would like them to contribute to the VIEW project by making short instructional videos using photography, much as duckrabbit do. So, watch this space.
Oh, and you must visit the First Cut exhibition. It’s amazing what can be achieved by folding, cutting and printing on paper.
