Vermeer paints ordinary life and folk, and we wonder, how does one transform the mundane into something so captivating? Many of us go through our daily routine without much thought, but as educators, we wonder what fresh perspectives children have.
“What If Vermeer Ate Kaya” aims to challenge children to imagine how our ordinary life would look in Vermeer’s paintings. In this 5-day camp, not only will we introduce participants to some of Vermeer's more renowned works, but we'd also be putting our heads together to create stories, reimagine the possibilities of life in the 17th century and what it'd look like to invite Vermeer and his characters into our home.
DAY 1 - PAINTING & SCRIPTING
Children will be introduced to some of Vermeer's works and challenged to create a story based on one of his most prominent paintings.
DAY 2 - UNDERSTANDING CAMERA SHOTS + STORYBOARDING
Based on the story they've created the day before, children learn about the different camera shots and the purpose they serve. They will then proceed to create a storyboard.
DAY 3: PRE PRODUCTION
Film requires many elements to come together, so pre production is very important to ensure that actual filming proceeds smoothly. Children will compile what they need for the production and work together to create them.
DAY 4: REHEARSALS + PRODUCTION
Filming begins in the first half of the day and children will be introduced to basic editing in the second part of the camp.
DAY 5: PREVIEW + POST PRODUCTION
Children prepare the studio for screening as parents are invited to watch the final production.
