About 30 students from Wilson Foundation Academy, who spent time learning about photography, showed off their works and celebrated their accomplishments.
“Studio 678” held its awards ceremony inside City Council Chambers Friday. The program is for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
Students like Christal Knight, learn all about photography, from taking pictures to developing the film, and how to frame their pictures.
“We get to finally see the good parts instead of all of the bad we normally see in our neighborhoods. And we get to like, just keep it for ever through a picture,” said Knight.
Beth Lyons-Cary, a volunteer teacher added, “I just think it's really important to educate kids at a young age so that they know that they have options so they don't feel stuck. That they've been exposed to a lot of different areas. If you're not exposed to these areas you don't know what to look for in the future.”
Immediately following the ceremony, people had the chance to take a look at the student's work, which was on display.
