See the world through the lens of photography this summer!

Register for the 2020 Fall Semester of our Sura Arts Academy, where students will learn the art of photography during a 10-week online course—either beginner and intermediate—designed to help them share stories about their lives, community and culture, using elements of social justice, journalism and empowerment, all through the lens of photography. This semester’s theme is telling your story in the year 2020. With the help of expert photographers, students will narrate and document their reality through photography and develop skills in composition, lighting and storytelling. The curriculum includes visual presentations, photographic challenges, activities, discussions, critiquing and analyzing and more. Students’ work will be celebrated in the annual SURA Student Photography Exhibition in 2021. 

This semester will be completely online and done from the comfort of students’ homes. Classes will meet via Zoom once a week, from 4-6 p.m. EDT. Students must have access to an electronic device with the Zoom app, webcam/microphone capabilities, and an internet connection.

  • Beginners Course (Ages 11-18): 4-6 p.m. EDT, Tuesdays, Oct. 6 – Dec. 15, 2020

    No experience necessary. Students are encouraged to use their own cell phones that have high quality cameras. For students who may not have access to a cell phone, AANM can provide digital cameras to those who need them and are able to pick them up at the Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, before the camp begins.

  • Intermediate Course (Ages 16-21): 4-6 p.m. EDT, Wednesdays, Oct. 7 – Dec. 16, 2020

    Students must have their own DSLR camera and have some experience using and understanding their camera.
