Handphone Photography Workshop for AWE Volunteers
15 Age Well Everyday (AWE) Volunteers gathered at Mind Art Experiential Lab (MAELab) on the morning of 17 September to pick up some tricks to capture professional-looking photos with their smartphones. During the 4-hours workshop, the volunteers learned the basics of photography, followed by some hand-on practice to take scenic photos at the butterfly garden, next to MAELab.
This trial workshop for the AWE volunteers from various community partners, is funded by Mind Science Centre and will be an optional workshop for them to introduce new content to their respective AWE programme seniors.
To mediate the impact of extended isolation on our AWE senior participants, MSC team pooled the resources to organize mini AWE sessions, which included AWE content refresher and upcoming workshop’s introductory teasers.
