Description

SEE YOUR WORLD IN A NEW WAY
Learn photography, make new friends!


Sura is an Arabic word for photograph. AANM’s SURA Arts Academy – a 2008 winner of the prestigious Coming Up Taller Award from the President’s Committee on Arts and the Humanities – helps students learn to interact with an increasingly diverse world through photography.


The program offers the use of a digital camera and classroom instruction by photographers and teaching artists over the course of a semester. Students will develop skills in composition, color, lighting, image storytelling, and social media sharing.


The curriculum includes: visual presentations, photographic and writing assignments, discussions, critiques and guest artist visits. Using photography and AANM’s digital community history lab, students will tell stories about their lives, community, and culture.


Students' work is later exhibited at AANM's Student Photography Exhibition.
