Description 

SEE YOUR WORLD IN A NEW WAY
Learn photography, make new friends! 

Sura is an Arabic word for photograph. AANM’s SURA Arts Academy – a 2008 winner of the prestigious Coming Up Taller Award from the President’s Committee on Arts and the Humanities – helps students learn to interact with an increasingly diverse world through photography.

The program offers the use of a digital camera and classroom instruction by photographers over the course of a semester. Students will develop skills in composition, color, lighting, image storytelling and social media sharing.

The curriculum includes: visual presentations, photographic and writing assignments, discussions, critiques and guest artist visits. Using photography and AANM’s digital community history lab, students will tell stories about their lives, community and culture.

Students’ work is later exhibited at AANM’s annual SURA Student Photography Exhibition.

SURA Arts Academy Spring Semester:
Photography and Art Therapy for New Americans (Ages 13-17)

5-7 p.m. Tuesdays, Feb. 11 – April 21, 2020 @ AANM

SURA Arts Academy invites immigrant and refugee youth to learn the art of photography in a FREE 10-week course designed to help students share stories about their lives, experiences, perspectives and culture.
With the help of local expert photographers and art therapists from Wayne State and using the Photo voice research method, students will narrate and document their reality through photography. DSLR cameras will be supplied by Wayne State University. Students must be between the ages of 13-17 and have lived in the U.S. from 0-5 years.
Students’ work will be celebrated in the Museum’s annual SURA Student Photography Exhibition.
