Kicking Off Student Mentoring

On October 24th, eleven SkillsUSA officers and photography members kicked off the 2011-12 Student2Student Mentoring program with their first workshop at Nellie Coffman Middle School.

For Photography Workshop 1,  high school students shared some of their own images, taught composition basics, and shared quick photo editing tips using iPhoto.  The 25 middle school students will upload their final images to the Digital Arts Education Ning for feedback.

The student lead workshops will occur each month throughout the year at both James Workman and Nellie Coffman middle schools, introducing kids in the after school clubs to digital arts basics such as photography, graphics, animation, and video. High school students will also share their Digital Arts Technology Academy experiences and creativity while emphasizing career, college, and technical pursuits.
