Course run by Adiva Koenigsberg
A yearlong workshop designed for teens ready to take their English and real-world skills to a new level. This three-part course will focus on the creation of images as a tool for dynamic discussions inspiring students to use photography and video as a tool for creative expression. The class is aimed at students interested in taking their learning out of the box.
Semester One_The Still Image
Using digital cameras we will discover and recreate images from the history of photography. Students will learn technical skills to create their own series of images. We will explore different ways to use photography as a means for storytelling and develop the visual vocabulary necessary to navigate and discuss our image-based world.
Using the photography skills learned in semester one students will learn how to use video editing software to move into the world of motion. Students will script, photograph and edit their own stop animation films.
Semester Three_Short film
This semester will be dedicated to shooting a short film. Students will work together to produce their own short films. They will learn how to script, shoot, storyboard, and edit their own projects.

CREATIVE WRITING FOR KIDS
5th grade – 4th level of ESO
Creative writing is one of the most important skills a child can learn; it stretches their imaginations and offers a positive outlet for self-expression. Writing allows children to explore their own identity, fears, hopes and values, as well as helping them to learn empathy. It also develops self-esteem, discipline and persuasiveness, as well as helping children better understand grammar and build their vocabulary. This small, personalized course is offered to children between the ages of 10-14 with a high level of English. Along with writing and editing their own collection of writing, the participants will get experience critiquing other work. The trimester will culminate with a collection of published work (class chapbook), as well as a reading at Collage where the students will have the opportunity to share their work with the community. Max. 6 students.
READING and WRITING: R+W+1
1st grade – 1st level of d’ESO
New Course! This program is designed for students who are already enrolled in a Collage course, and who would like to specifically improve their reading and writing skills.
