Pinhole Camera Photos by Stephanie Trevino, who will be leading the free workshop.
We’re proud to announce the first program of Art Share, a free community arts program presented by the City of Harveyville and funded by volunteers and the Kansas Arts Commission.
When: Saturday, August 8, Noon – 3pm
Where: The Harveyville Project (the old high school, 13149 Harveyville Road)
YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE. The workshop is free, but we need a headcount to have enough supplies for everyone.
What is a pinhole camera? A pinhole camera is a very simple camera with no lens and a single very small aperture. Simply explained, it is a light-proof box with a small hole in one side. Light from a scene passes through this single point and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. Cameras using small apertures, and the human eye in bright light both act like a pinhole camera. (-Wikipedia)
ALL AGES WELCOME–Adults and children. Children under 8 will need a parent present to supervise them and handle the sharp tools. All students under 18 will need permission slips from their parents (available after 8/3, or immediately before class).
Photographer Stephanie Trevenio will lead the workshop and curate the subsequent exhibit. You will make your own pinhole camera and learn how to use it. Each student will shoot one roll of film at the workshop and leave it to be developed. If there is enough film remaining, we’ll send extra home with you, and you can return your additional shots for development by the end of the week.
Stephanie will select one shot from each student to be printed for a public exhibit the last weekend in August. There will be an optional informal workshop on matting prints later in the month if anyone would like to learn. The teacher will provide details.
We’ll have supplies for everyone on hand, but if you have any of the following you’d like to donate in advance, we’d be thrilled! We’d also love volunteers setting up, putting up posters, spreading the word, etc. Please email or call Nikol or Stephanie at 785-589-2714 after 8/3 if you’d like to help! We’ll thank donors and volunteers on our upcoming Art Share web site.

This program is presented in part by the Kansas Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
You can support this or future Art Share programs with donations. Cash donations are strictly segregated into an Art Share account and used to directly defray excess project expenses (most likely developing, in the case of this program). Any surplus will be applied to future program expenses (buying supplies, etc.). Unless you request that we not name you, we’ll thank you on our upcoming Art Share web site. Your support is much appreciated!
