OuR Mission

Above and beyond photography.


Our mission is to provide educational arts programing to students from under-resourced areas in Chicago while giving students an opportunity to develop skills and gain confidence through the vehicle of photography. We promote individual growth, team building, good work habits, and responsibility.

We hold the belief that no student should be denied access to enrichment opportunities based on their ability to pay. The program staff that has more than forty years of combined teaching experience and is fully committed to delivering a first-class program.
