ART CHANGES LIVES.
Studio 678 is in its 18th year – working with 30 7th
and 8th grade students from Wilson Foundation Academy. Students
have been meeting every Thursday from 2:30-6PM since September, and even
several Saturdays. Students work with Photography Teachers to learn about
photography, learning how to use a 35mm camera, developing their photos in the
darkroom, using ratios to mix the chemicals, scanning photos using InDesign,
and working with local poets to write poetry to accompany their work – all
while visiting local sites. The goals of the photo club are to:
Empower youth to express their vision and voice
Enable youth to build life skills
Encourage youth to connect with their community
Enhance knowledge of core school subjects
Energize youth to work collaboratively
· Establish 1-3 year mentoring relationships
Field Trips include:
University of Rochester football game
Sam Patch Canal boat
Maplewood Rose Garden
Rochester Public Market, etc.
