Over the course of the past two years, high school students from the community surrounding Focus: HOPE began a journey into self-expression and awareness through the art of photography.
This weekly after-school program offered a progressive curriculum coupled with hands-on classroom instruction, educational field trips to cultural institutions, and exciting photographic shoots to diverse locations throughout the metropolitan area. Participants learned the foundations of black & white and color photography. Professional photographers served as mentors to guide students through this educational experience. During their commitment, students began to unleash their creativity while simultaneously cultivating knowledge, self-awareness, and leadership skills.
This exhibition was on display at the Museum from May 23 through 27 in the Woodward Gallery.
