Focus On Nature

  • Énoncé de mission:
    “Focus on Nature is an educational program that uses photography to connect children to nature, and to engage them in learning. ” (from web) 
  • Informations additionnelles:
    With the goal of engaging kids in learning through nature photography, the kids are given cameras to use, taught the creative elements of photography, and taken on photography field trips to explore and document local natural environments. The beauty of the cameras is that they inspire these young people to go outside, and to look at nature in a different way, up close and with eyes wide open.
    As the program has evolved, efforts have been made to target schools deemed "higher need." Community response has been excellent so far with student work featured in local newspapers and art exhibits, and alliances formed with businesses and schools.
