Houston, TX – Houston Center for Photography announces its 2nd annual Family Day! Kids of all ages are invited to come explore the world of photography in an afternoon at HCP for free!
Start with the historic process of cyanotypes, creating photograms on sun print paper using objects from nature and the store. The sun prints are then exposed in the sunlight and then developed in water and hung to dry. At the next station, kids will be able to create collage people using magazines and images from books. Move into the Digital Age with the Projected Drawings project. Children and parents will take their photos using the in-computer camera then trace the image projected onto a piece of paper.
Projects will include Sunprints, Collage People, Projected Drawings, frame making, digital portraits, and a project in HCP’s Digital Darkroom. Family Portraits will also be available during the event. All projects will be available to take home that day.
On view at HCP July 10 - August 23 is the Juried Membership Exhibition - a fun-filled and kid-friendly show. Juried by Katherine Ware, curator of photographs at the Santa Fe Museum of Art, the exhibition consists of work by 26 artists from Houston and beyond. The exhibition opening reception is on Friday, July 10 from 6-8 p.m.
