Hello ArtsEd People!
I am a photographer and a parent. I would like to in some way volunteer my
time to the local elementary school(s) art teacher(s) and offer to help
with a photo segment.
I am getting ready to do my masters work in photo and have worked at the
high school level in a photo program. I found the students there had a very
hard time visualizing photos beyond portraiture. Perhaps exposure at an
earlier age to this sometimes forgotten medium would be appropriate?
Here is my question. Is fine art photography represented in any way at
this level of schooling? My memory of elementary art says no, but I am not
aware of the current styles.
What are the lessons used, if any?

What makes photography a strange invention - with unforeseeable
consequences - is that its primary raw materials are light and time.
