“The Inside/Outside Photography Project invites students with mental health challenges to step outside of the classroom and treatment center to explore their creativity through photography. Students will take photographs, edit the photos and display them in multiple formats including print, digital and video. Opportunities for social and emotional learning will occur through a variety of prompts and assignments. A written component of the project will encourage students to express their thoughts, emotions and beliefs in response to the photographs. The project will be ongoing throughout the school year and includes a collaboration between the treatment center and school.”
