My Students

As a school in a small district facing economic, food access, and socialization challenges, we are in need of resources that allow our students to tell their own stories.

My students are a diverse set of creative makers and brainstorming future leaders!

They come to our school with a breadth of knowledge from around the world, and then share it through the arts for our community to revel in.

These stories can be told through artistic expression to help educate, promote awareness, and assist in the release of tension, stress, and create works that help inspire others to action(s).

My Project

Using digital photography methods and skills, student will brainstorm, shoot, edit and currate a body of work to show the effects of the pandemic on them personally, on their community, and the world.

My students do not have access to many resources to enable self-expression or an outlet to show theifr feelings about topics, especially ones so impactful as the pandemic.

By providing students with cameras and photography guidance, they will have important and reflective stories to tell. The hope is that reactions from these projects will promote hope or a call to action.
