Art is not so much expressing oneself, as it is discovering oneself. –Anawanitia
It is tough growing up these days …well tough growing up period! I know If didn’t have art and photography when I was a teenager I would have been lost. That’s why we need programs like First Exposures!
Unfortunately, So many arts programs are needing funding. You can help by purchase my book !
Here is a little more information about First Exposures:
First Exposures provides a creative outlet for students to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment, and encourages them to become articulate, confident, and responsible young adults. In 2008 First Exposures expanded its program by introducing a digital photography class in order to serve more youth.
Mission:First Exposures is a unique mentoring program that uses art education to develop transferable skills and foster supportive intergenerational relationships between artists and under-served Bay Area youth. Students and mentors meet weekly for a year and work toward a final project, which in the past has included exhibitions, public billboards, and the book First Exposures.
