Go Photo! at LOOK3

Sunday, June 19

2:00 p.m. EST

Jefferson School African American Heritage Center 233 4th Street Northwest Charlottesville, VA

Join Alice Proujansky, author of Go Photo! A Photography Activity Book for Kids (Aperture, 2016), as she leads kids in photo-related activities and signs books as part of LOOK3’s inaugural Family Photo Day. Two of the children featured in the book are from Charlottesville and will also be present for the book signing.

Go Photo! contains twenty-three DIY projects inspired by photography. Aimed at children between eight and twelve years old, this playful and inspiring collection of projects encourages young readers to experiment with their imaginations, get messy with materials, and capture how they see the world around them.

Family Photo Day offers the Charlottesville community the opportunity to experience the publishing tools, cameras, printers and more that engage our artists and enrich our creativity.
