Framing Photography’s Future
Framing Photography’s future will benefit the 5th graders of Martin Luther King Jr. School of the Arts and the 6th graders of Seaside Middle School.
Sessions of Framing Photography’s Future will encourage students to express themselves freely in a safe, creative, and fun environment while actively participating in thoughtful discussion and gaining practical experience working in the darkroom. The program will take an engaging, hands-on, approach to cover all aspects of photography through a diverse and stimulating range of in-class activities, projects, and lessons. TWC will work closely with MLK SOA’s faculty Arts Specialist and Instructor, Wendi Everett, to develop a sanctuary for students to learn about art and themselves. With the funds from this grant, TWC will be able to furnish its new classroom and supply a working darkroom to create an environment which is familiar to all students and a necessity for teaching and learning.
