Printable lessons cover the topics of History of Photography, Photographer's Toolkit, Exposure White Balance, Basic Settings, Composition, Basic Lighting, Basic Posing, and Careers in Photography.
You can split the lessons into 10 sections to span an approx. 45 minute 10 week course... or you could double up and create a 5 day session to span a summer camp, spring break or fall break camp.
Lessons come in layered .psd format for you to edit text & images as you wish. Also included are 3 activity sheets, an attendance chart, instructor notes, basic instructions for Photoshop and a list of fonts used.
The curriculum covers exactly what I need for my Basic Digital Photography workshop and has now prompted me to branch out into new worlds with teaching photography to children. I have found that not only do I love taking pictures and creating beautiful images, but that I love teaching others how to do the same!
Kids will love having their own "photographer" badge. Plus, it helps you remember their names! :). Instructions included with purchase on how to print these on your home printer or have them professionally printed.

You can choose to make this a requirement if you'd like, but you want to make sure you aren't discouraging someone who can't afford a DSLR. Plus, many times parents won't want to invest in a DSLR until they know their child is more serious. The kids can learn with a point-and-shoot camera just as well and even their own phones. You can bring your own DSLR and gear in for show and tell.
