We had the best time with Jon at shutter bugs. The littles drew, painted, took still shots, and portraits. I was beyond impressed with Jon’s patience and dedication to letting little ones create and explore with photography and art. Jon gave the littles creative freedom while giving them encouragement, guidance, and support. I absolutely love this way of empowering kids to express themselves. Jon printed the little’s favorite shots of the day and they were stoked to frame and hang their very own photos when we got home. We are already looking forward to our next visit and invited some friends this time!
What a lot of parents don’t realize is that these young children can do so much with a camera and during these classes even the really young ones do most of the creative process on their own, with guidance from the owner, Jon. You can take a look at @shutterbugsatx on Instagram & facebook to see just how talented these kids are!
There is this notion that children can’t do photography, but with the right guidance and the opportunity to try it out, it can become something amazing!
Children don’t need a camera to take a class – The studio will provide them.
Kids aren’t just handed a camera and start taking pictures. Jon teaches them about how it’s used and how it works before advancing to things like lighting and how to use a backdrop.
The children have the freedom to create what they want to photograph – past classes have used food as the subject, electronics, abstract art, people, interiors, and exteriors.
In addition to photography, children work with other mediums such as painting and collaging.
4 hours of learning and experimenting at an open studio Sunday only costs $20.
In addition to the open studio Sundays and regular classes that Shutter Bugs offers, the studio is also hosting its first-ever summer camp. Parents can choose from 5, 10 or month-long camp sessions in the months of June, July or August.
