Photo workshops for kids

Photo by Shermeee
Today I ran across a website called 503 Workshops, which offers online photography workshops for kids (ages 7+) and adults. After a recent video project with my elementary students (grades 3-5) in which the students brought back a more than a few less-than-flattering shots, I think this would be a fantastic workshop for kids to learn the power of communicating effectively with photos. After all, so much of our world today is communicated digitally and through images.

The workshop, which has summer sessions lasting for several weeks, is a tad on the expensive side, but can be done anywhere in the world--a plus for teachers like me who live outside of the U.S.
