Photography Exposes Students to Visual Literacy
There are hundreds of examples of how San Diego’s diverse and interconnected arts and culture community inspires, educates, and entertains visitors and San Diegans all year round. There is more happening in your community than you know. Finding these stories of collaboration and sharing them is like being on a never-ending treasure hunt.
Exposure, is an educational program created by the Museum of Photograph Arts and offers the opportunity for students throughout San Diego to engage with photography as an expressive art. The program encourages visual literacy, discussion-based art interpretation, and the development of personal voice. Lessons are aligned to VAPA and Common Core standards and are developed collaboratively with classroom teachers to provide the best experience for students!
