Photography 101 School Visit Program for Grades K-12

The curriculum for Photography 101 supports connections to National Core Standards for Visual Arts, Next Generation Science Standards, and English Language Arts/Literacy Common Core Standards for 1st-12th grade students.

During this two-hour museum experience, students participate in collaborative, interactive gallery discussions that encourage making detailed observations and sharpening presentation skills. Led by Museum Educators, students explore images historically and regionally significant photographers, past and present. Students will explore what inspired photographers to capture images of landscapes, still lifes, and people in the Monterey region and beyond.

Students also participate in a hands-on art exercise where they experience a demonstration of a camera obscura to bring historical photographic processes to life, and create their own photographic images using light from the sun.

See here for a full list of supported standards.
