Digital Portrait Workshops

Digital Portrait Workshops

The Face2Face Digital Portrait Workshops are about having fun with mobile phones, computers and images (old and new) and being creative and imaginative. They offer a brand new opportunity and a simple way to learn about current and future technologies using some interesting techniques and some new apps to produce very original portraits and selfies. Driving these workshops forward is a crew of dedicated, highly creative young people from the newly formed Torbay Digital Agency working together with Play Torbay, the Real Ideas Organisation and South Devon College. The workshops are open to all ages. To book a place please visit , buy tickets - available from 19th July.
