In the world of visual excess, the adventure with the creation of paintings on canvas with a phosphorescent pigment that disappears after re-exposure is also surprisingly fun. Participants activate the imagination in the darkness, creating an opalescent theater of shadows in the dark.

Photos without the camera and disappearing images

The workshop is addressed mainly to the youngest participants, showing unusual forms of creating images using light. In today’s reality, photographing is extremely easy, but the satisfaction of creating images often disappears due to the ease of their creation. To acquaint young adepts of photography with old techniques of creating images is both learning the history of the language of images and having an instructive fun. Luxography is one of the forgotten techniques. It is a photography based on the phenomenon of photochemical photosensitivity. It allows you to create images directly on photosensitive paper, bypassing the camera. At the same time, allows for unrestricted creation and is open to a chance, often so inspiring in the process of creative education.

Classes for children from 6 to 13 years old.
