One Vision Summer Program is a pilot program that strives to create an artistic and educational space for marginalized and disadvantaged youth entering grades 9 – 12, or ages 14 – 18. Through this process, five (5) participants are invited to explore digital photography and film-making. Each participant will receive a Fuji X-T3 digital camera (18 – 55 mm lens included), a MacBook computer for image editing, and an Adobe Creative Suite subscription. An application for participation is required; there is no cost to approved participants. No previous experience is needed. Applications are due before or by Friday, July 1st, 2022 by 11:59 pm, CST. Hard copies of the application will also be available at the front desk of the Plains Art Museum—you can obtain, complete, and submit an application in person at your convenience. The Museum’s hours for the public can be found here.
One Vision Summer Program will be held at the Plains Art Museum, during the month of July 2022 every Thursday (7, 14, 21, 28 @ 5:00 – 8:00 pm) and every Sunday (10, 17, 24, 31 @ 1:00 – 3:00 pm). Sundays are for classroom learning; Thursdays, to put the knowledge into practice with your equipment. Questions? Contact Dr. Kelvin Monroe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
