School of Photography
School of Photography is the moving force of the Center of Photography. Search for talents and stimulation of creative thinking is the project’s aim. It is a necessary condition on the way towards a change in the Belarusian art photography.
The structure of the School is a multilevel system that consists of different subjects as modules. This construction makes it flexible and open for new ideas and changes. A learning process is minimum formalized. This gives the opportunity for teachers to explain photography from their own points of view making the idea of photographic nature complete. Lack of dogmatism, variability of teachers’ opinions and intensity of the learning process influence students’ attitude to life. This all finally forms a special environment. Only such an environment enables change from the passive, consuming form of getting knowledge to the active position of making knowledge.
Each term ends with an exhibition where students’ photographic projects are exposed. A student is believed to determine by him/herself the efficiency of the result in the context of other students’ works and teachers’ reviews. The idea is that the student by him/herself evaluates the efficiency of the result in the context of other students’ works and teachers’ comments.
The School of Photography is open for the international cooperation.
