Photography Class

This class is designed for students interested in learning about photography or practicing their passion for photography. This class includes instruction on basic photographic technique, 100 days of practice lessons, a section on wildlife photography, portraits, action photography, close-up photography, art and abstract photography and much more. At the end of this course there is an online exhibit of student work with awards.

All student work is critiqued by the instructor in the forum.

This class includes 9-weeks of video sessions where students work through the material together. However, students can also work at their own pace.

 

Future photography classes are included in the price so your student can “pop into” the classroom any time in the future after they finish the class and meet other students. Enrolled students remain a member of the class and the student chat room for life.

Instructor Kristie Burns was a photo-journalist in Chicago for three years covering presidential elections and protests at the time. Later she was a photo-journalist in The Middle East for 16-years and has exhibited photos on the “Women of Egypt” as well as covering treks through the desert with nomads, street life in Cairo and tourism in Syria, Jordan and Egypt. Her work has been published internationally including Lonely Planet Guides (Egypt 1986-1996 editions) and even a Hollywood movie (the original Stargate). Kristie is currently working on a photo documentary called Earthschooling365.

The RECORDED VERSION of this class is included in the High School Curriculum Package. However, if the student would like to experience personal teacher feedback and evaluations they will need to pay an upgrade fee as live classes and tutoring are not included in the high school curriculum package.

Current Earthschooling high school students can pay the upgrade fee of $50.00 HERE.

High School Earthschooling Curriculum SINGLE FAMILY PACKAGE with Student Portal

Notice: This package will increase in price from $450 to $600 on September 1st.

This package is valid for one person/family only. If your entire co-op wants to purchase a package please use the co-op purchase option. If you are unfamiliar with this package we suggest that you purchase a smaller lesson block first as a sample. You will be given credit for your purchase if you decide to upgrade.

New! This program now includes a student portal where your student can go through each block lesson-by-lesson and can track their progress and make comments on each lesson. Students also have a new meeting room and live classes are available each trimester.

This Waldorf-inspired Earthschooling high school curriculum (G9-G12)  is being developed by our dedicated team of teachers and will include extra videos and more in-depth lessons than our preschool-G8 curriculum. The large number of videos we are providing with the curriculum allow the teacher better instruction for the more advanced high school topics as well as the option of allowing their child to be taught a lesson by a certified Waldorf, handwork, history, art or science teacher. At this time 9th grade is complete and 10th grade is 70% complete. We expect to be finished with 10th grade by 2017.  In addition, we are starting to post some lessons for 11th and 12 grade. Eleventh grade will be completed by August 2017 and twelfth grade will be completed by August 2018. By enrolling now in our “development” stage you can receive all the lessons we have available now AND all the high school lessons we will develop in the future for a fraction of the final cost.  The entire high school curriculum package will cost $1250.00 or more starting as early as January 2016. Usually only Lifetime/Family Package members may purchase this as an add-on. However, until we finish the tenth grade materials we are allowing anyone to purchase this package!

Why do we call this a “Curriculum Experience” ? Because when you purchase Earthschooling curriculum you not only receive a full curriculum (without the need to purchase any additional materials) but you also receive:

*Teacher support videos, mP3s and live support worth over $200.00

*24-Hour member forum
*Bi-monthly Q & A sessions with a Waldorf teacher worth over $180.00 a year
