What you'll do
Explore the Met Museum in New York City on a smartphone photography lesson with access to the members-only lounge. This is a hands-on interactive approach to seeing art at a major cultural institution while jumping in to make in-camera collages with your smartphone. Get creative with this hands-on photography lesson, while taking your time to see and appreciate the fabulous artworks at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. At the end of the experience, you’ll gain exclusive access to the members-only lounge where we share our content over a drink or light snack (optional). We meet at the MET on 5th Avenue with your smartphone ready to capture images from selected exhibitions, including painting, sculpture, costume design, etc. In short we'll interact with famous artwork - then reimagine and create our own original art. We will discuss composition, color, design, storytelling, and hone in on your personal vision. In the museum galleries, you are encouraged to respond to the masterful artwork before you. During the experience you are also invited to share your unique vision to tell your own stories. See you at the Met!
Award-winning photographer, founder of 99Prints | NYC (online art site) and The Photo Experience, I offer a sharp eye, experience, technical, creative know-how and fun. As artist, entrepreneur, and local resident, I love the museum as a creative playground to expand our visions. On a practical note I have shared the skills of creativity through interdisciplinary photo activities to over 500 participants of all ages, backgrounds, career paths, and from around the world with the philosophy that Art Saves Lives. Our ethos is: Spark Your Creativity, daily!
