ABOUT BIG PICTURE:  Big Picture Art House offers photography and film classes for kids and teens in the Boston Area. Classes are run by founder, Jennifer Connelly, and take place during school vacation weeks, occasional weekends and we have a full schedule of film and photography summer workshops. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 7 students, and are suitable for youth in grades 5-12.  The typical age group is 6-9th graders with the most common student age of 13. 

Photography workshops provide each student with their own professional digital SLR camera.  Film workshops are collaborative efforts, where the students together write, shoot, act and edit their own short film.
