Professional Photography By Kids!

Pix By Tweens is a micro-business started (and named) by a group of middle school students who participate in Room13/Eliot (Eliot Middle School in Altadena, CA.). The creative student-run art studio on campus is part of an international children's art movement known as Room 13. There are more than 80 such studios around the world. www.room13scotland.org.


Room13/Eliot and Pix By Tweens are overseen and supported by the Pasadena nonprofit arts organization called Light Bringer Project, who are also a communications hub for Room 13 start-ups in North America. www.lightbringerproject.com or Facebook us!


Originally, the students’ business plan determined that Pix By Tweens would photograph fellow classmates’ school portraits. Now they are incorporating event and photo booths and ID card photos as well. The young artists are learning how to work with a professional camera, set up backdrops and make props, create optimum lighting, capture information on their apple big screen, and deliver a great image to a customer through a printer. They are catching on fast!


Under the regular weekly guidance of Artist-In-Residence, Amber Tilden, and the volunteer mentorship of Art Center College of Design Graduate and professional photographer, Julie Klima, the Pix By Tweens young photographers will thrive in art and business in Room13.


Pix by Tweens photo micro business at Room13/Eliot would not have been possible without a generous grant from the Pasadena Community Foundation who provided the professional photography equipment and apple computer and software to get it all started.


We also thank our Principal, Peter Pannell, the teachers and staff, and the PTA at Eliot Middle School, for allowing us to park our Room 13 here. We are located in the Pasadena Unified School District. Please inquire about visiting us in our studio.
