Joanne Miller: Photography, Nature, Art and the Ecosystem
Joanne Miller leads students through a process of discovery. While incorporating the visual language of art and use of a camera as a tool, students communicate their understanding of interdependent relationships in ecosystems. Young artists are guided though the basics of camera use, composition, observation of details and personal point-of-view.
“Fantastic program…students developed creative and critical thinking skills! They were given the opportunity to see the world in a new way.”
