See the world through the lens of photography this Spring!

Register for the 2021 Spring 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 shape their photographic skills and 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 documenting our world in the age of Covid.

With the help of local, expert photographers, students will narrate and document their reality through photography and develop skills in composition, lighting, composition and storytelling. The curriculum includes visual presentations, photographic challenges, activities, discussions, critiquing/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, 4-6 p.m. EST. 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. EST Tuesdays, Feb. 23 – May 4 2021

  • Intermediate Course (Ages 17+): 4-6 p.m. EST Wednesdays, Feb. 24 – May 5 2021
