“You are the Artist of Your Life: Exploring Life Direction Through Photography” – Teen is specifically designed for teens 13-17, to give them a unique way to envision their futures, and start taking the steps to create them.
Recognizing that sitting at a desk and planning a career is not the most attractive way to spend teen time, “You are the Artist of Your Life” is an experience of creative exercises, action, reflection & writing – looking at photography, shooting, editing, sharing – understanding resonance, values, heroes and challenges – interviewing skills, portraitures, outside speakers – and finally outlining ideas for what can be done to start creating that life now.
Students enjoy their cameras as a fun companion, as well as an inspiring and serious tool for creating their future.
