I'm Still 'Waiting For Superman'

My Students

The true art of 'seeing' things and being patient is becoming a lost skill. The idea that kids confuse a 'snapshot' with a real picture is disheartening. Because of this, quantity and product is overpowering the process and quality of art.

The students that I teach are featured in the movie "Waiting for Superman." They are hard working students that just need a chance in life to be better, do better, and become people.

They need to experience what life out side their block is like so their eyes can open and their desires become strong.

My Project

The cameras that can be donated will inspire my students to realize that there is a life full of quality. To rid themselves of the idea that quick and easy is not the route to go, but to consider how powerful it is to see life and experience it from behind a lens is my desire to teach these students. When I take them out on field trips around our town, they can have the wonderful experience of capturing what they experience in an artistic way by seeing and using a REAL camera.

Teaching the students how to use a real camera will enable them to understand the different ways to see life.

Like the lives that they live, they need to be able to stop, think, and take a moment to realize what life has to offer and change it if they can.
