Second Sight Photo Program
Second Sight was an intensive after-school photo based art education program exploring digital photo techniques and concepts in a classroom environment.
For three years, the Second Sight Photo Program was offered at three area high schools in Boston. These schools included Tech Boston Academy, Boston Prepatory Charter Public School in collaboration with the New England Institute of Art, and our newest educational partner Fenway High School.
The Second Sight Photo Program encouraged students' creativity and self - expression, while prompting an active reflection on issues of identity, representation, and environment, through a series of hands-on photographic activities. Under the guidance of experienced artist/educators, students worked with digital cameras, Adobe Photoshop, and various color and black and white digital outputs to create works of art inspired by their own lives while learning the basics of photography. Students study a variety of photographic techniques and genres such as portraiture, still life, photo-montage, street photography, etc. It afforded students the ability and confidence to photograph the world around them, while also considering their place in that world.
