    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
    Fringe Fest
    Maplewood Rose Garden
    Cobbs Hill
    Rochester Public Market, etc.
