Picture This! is a co-ed community education program developed at HCP for students in grades 3 – 12. Throughout five modules, Picture This! teaches participants the importance of photography in communicating a message, how a camera works, and how to use a camera as a tool to express personal identity and to explore one’s environment. At the conclusion, participants learn how to communicate the ideas behind their work through writing artist statements and giving artist talks to one another. The program culminates with an optional exhibition in which participants select work to showcase for the surrounding community.
|Since 2002, Picture This! has been implemented at Texas Children’s Hospital in partnership with The Periwinkle Arts In Medicine Program. Picture This! is currently also provided in partnership with schools and community centers throughout Houston.|
