Photography is such a powerful and accessible medium. It lends itself to the classroom setting and incorporation into all curricula - not just the arts. It is especially effective when dealing with students who are language and literacy challenged. It is a vehicle really, for students to look closely at themselves and their environment and to apply those insights to other facets of their studies.

 Photography can be incorporated into the curriculum in ways that facilitate learning. There is great flexibility in approach, and consultation with classroom instructors will determine the one best suited for the project and the student population, and the school resources. Please contact me and we’ll design a visitation schedule and project description. Photography in the classroom setting can be an inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
