We kicked off the summer arts program this week with 40 youth, 9 of which are photography students. We've spent the first week with orientation and exploration activities.
The youth have enjoyed exploring the four art tracks, including the photography track, meeting new friends and learning about the Civil War, which is the theme for the summer. In this first week, participants received an introduction to photography including the elements of composition and parts of a camera.
In the next weeks, participants will delve into their chosen track, go on a camping trip to Catoctin Mountain Park, make a self portrait and begin planning their final project or presentation piece.
Stay tuned for more updates on the youth's camping trip and self-portrait project.
Thank you for your continued support. Your generosity is helping change the lives of low-income youth in Washington DC with meaningful art experiences!
