You can still visit our Body Beautiful exhibition on a teacher-led visit.
Our Photography course is very popular and spaces are limited. In order that we can try to accommodate every booking request, schools are requested to provide confirmed pupil numbers when booking.
During the day at the museum, pupils will have the opportunity to explore the museum and costumes in the morning and will then take it in turns to create portraits in the afternoon. Please ensure pupils bring any props, costumes, make-up, hair accessories, clothing to be worn underneath costumes, or other additional items they might require and be prepared to change into costumes after lunch. We recommend black t-shirt/top and black leggings/trousers/tights.
Learn the skills you need to prepare for your own photo shoot with one day at the museum and an afternoon at Stills: Centre for Photography to create your own page layout for a zine.
Work with professional photographers from Stills to explore approaches to lighting, composition and styling and create your own image, inspired by the Body Beautiful exhibition.
