Hannah Danforth Hill
Hannah has been teaching art and photography enrichment classes for elementary and middle school students for over five years. She has a background in photojournalism, portraiture and fine art photography. She enjoys working with students as they discover new and unique ways to express themselves. When she isn’t homeschooling or chasing after her toddler, you can find her collaborating on mixed media art projects with her husband and three boys.
Yearbook is a photojournalism class. Using a smartphone or digital camera, students will be given assignments to complete during the days FLP meets throughout the school year. As a class we will collaborate on book design, plan photo and writing assignments and set deadlines. Students will learn how to edit photographs, gather all necessary information, use photo release forms and collaborate on creating a visual story using bookmaking software. This is a fun opportunity for students who are interested in learning what takes to create and publish their work, with the final product being a memory book everyone involved with FLP will truly enjoy for years to come.
Yearbooks will be published and for sale. Books will be available for signing during the last week of Spring Quarter during Summer Send Off 2020! Although this class is planned as a three-session series (Fall 2019, Winter 2020, and Spring 2020), students can join the class for any or all three parts of this course.
