At i.imagine we use photography to empower kids to find their souls and tell their stories. To achieve this mission we lead school programs that inspire kids to artistically capture their world in photographs. Students learn technical concepts in photography, as well as how to emotionally tell a story with each photograph.  To do this we discuss relevant social issues, and how to emotionally tell a story in each photograph. Students learn creative skills in a range of settings as they grow the confidence to discuss their ideas as artists. All of our programs end with a public exhibition, kicked off with a grand opening reception, where students showcase their work to the broader community. We also engage in special projects that offer unique opportunities for community organizations and the public to collaborate with i.imagine students.
