The college campus had Club Fair Day and the Photo Club did it up in style, opening our latest gallery for the Spring 2010 semester at the same time. The gallery is a circus theme and features a goulish ringmaster, aerialists, a mystique, and a variety of other goodies all done up in a big tent like the real circus does! We whipped up some cotton candy for the event and this brought many students and faculty to the exhibit and found they not only saw an excellent gallery but learned all about our club as well! We even had a man on stilts passing out fliers! He appears in a couple of the photos. As always, I’ve included some photos of the setting up and some of the opening day of our gallery. We’ll probably get a few new members out of this one and the event was in our eyes extremely successful! Hope to see you soon at one of our meetings!

A lesson on animal life cycles

The Southwestern College Photoclub had it’s first event! In an attempt to promote photography in young people, we attended a field trip with Ms. Montoya and the 2nd graders of Central Elementary in Imperial Beach. Two club members attended the event and many pictures were taken by both of us who attended and the kids who were provided with disposable cameras that we must now develop. We will return with the finished pictures and help the kids make collages of the photographs that they took. This time, we took a bus tour, wandered around a little checking some of the animals out and the kids attended a little assembly to learn more about the life cycles of animals. This has become one of our regular events that we perform each semester and it is always a lot of fun! I have included some pictures taken during our event. This is the kind of things we’re involved with this semester. Please come join us! Our meetings occur Wednesday between 11-12 in Rm. 518 and we also hang out on Friday’s between 12 and 3:30PM in Rm. 518 during our advisor Todd’s lab. If you can’t make the meetings, this is like a second meeting and we encourage you to come hang out with us! We have lots more interesting events upcoming. Keep an eye here for reviews of our events and to keep posted on what is coming up.

Hanging out at our Friday meeting.Chartered at the ICC Meeting 2.Chartered at the ICC meeting.Our club was rechartered for the Spring Semester on the 1st of February. The officers for the club are Valeria Sanchez, President, Laura Palomino, Vice President, Pablo, our Secretary and Susan Sanchez our Treasurer. I will be taking the ICC representative this semester plus I will be setting up and maintaining our Internet presence and this website as well. We have some interesting events planned including a trip to the Zoo with the 2nd graders of Ms. Montoya’s 2nd grade class at Central Elementary in Imperial Beach. You will have the chance to see some of the things we’ve done as I always include photos of each event. What would be better is for you to come to some of our events and experience what it is to be a member of our Photo club!

We are graciously accepting all people interested in the arts to our club. We are increasing our horizons to now include the fine arts in our club. We are transitioning to the SWC Photo & Arts Club slowly and surely. Planned events include a field trip with Ms. Montoya and the 2nd graders of Central Elementary, a camping trip and a fundraiser somewhere in there. We would like to do another riverbed clean up event and bring other clubs in the ASO into this event. Keep an eye on this page for news about our events and when they will occur and then a blurb about everything and how it went afterwards. Welcome to the SWC Photoclub for Spring 2010!
