Julia Margaret Cameron Day at Bridgwater College

We would like to invite you to our first art and design theme day on Saturday August 29th in the Arts and Media block at Bridgwater College from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

grafic pen emailWe will be celebrating the bi centenary of pioneering photographer Julia Margaret Cameron’s birth by making portraits using equipment and processes Cameron would have used in the mid Victorian period. Cameron’s art contemporaries will be recognised by interpretive painting and drawing that will run alongside. The growth of interest in retro photo processes is something of a current phenonimum. At Bridgwater College we already include a number of these across our existing provision and are now extending this further especially as part of our adult courses. We look forward to seeing you on the 29th any point during the day as the process will be continuous, and please do bring a friend with you. If you are unable to come please feel free to pass this invitation on to anyone who maybe interested in experiencing a day of live photo history.
