Classes team up to create a unique learning experience
Decatur – Students from Heartland Technical Academy's Audio Video Production class are collaborating with students from Cosmetology.
Students from the Cosmetology class recently learned new techniques from a national hair show. They will put their skills to the test as Audio Video students learn how to photograph their hair and make-up styles.
The models will each have themed looks, including earth, wind, fire, water, and many others in their hair and make-up designs. For the photography students, it is a chance to create unique artistic portraits for their portfolio.
"These days, nearly every student takes dozens of photos a week on their phones and with digital cameras. Through this project, class members will learn good photographic strategies, including how to pose models to create a special look," said A-V instructor Gayle Simpson Bowman.
The class will be held again tomorrow from 9 -11 a.m. at Richland Community College.
