A Time to Play, Photography workshop

Sat 29th February
Age 8+

Engineers Week is on its way and what better way be part of it than to take technology that we already use every day and find new ways to use it. 

Inspired by Tommy Weir’s photography exhibition Cillín in The Dock, Anna Leask will show you how to use your photography in a creative way by creating light paintings. These can be incredibly fun to make and turn you into the kind of superhero you never knew you were. Anna will show you how to create a light painting from smart devices, as well as DSLR's.

 Anna Leask is a graduate from IT Sligo specialising in Digital Lens Based Media and displays her photography using different kinds of processing.  Anna was awarded The Dock Graduate Residency Award in 2017.  She has exhibited her photography work in group exhibitions since 2015.  Anna works as a photographer documenting different events and arts festivals.  Recently she has worked on the Collective Producers project with The Dock teaching photography, as well as teaching in national schools through County Sligo and Leitrim and has taught adult photography classes for the MSLETB and Sligo Leader.
