Kids in Focus
On Friday evening I attended an exhibit of photos all taken by kids between 11 and 14 years old. The show was the culmination of a series of creative sessions with children who have a background of some type of trauma such as poverty, homelessness, neglect and/or abuse. The children are given a digital camera and then they work with professional photographers who volunteer their time to teach the children how to see the world in a whole new light.
The second photo is a shadow centered on the new zen garden at the Desert Botanical Garden.
Very creative work.
There was a pretty good sized crowd of people at the event. A much bigger turnout than I had expected. What a great program that teaches creativity and gives so much positive reenforcement.
