First Exposures is a arts mentoring program, which offers free photography classes to young people in our community. Fall 2020 semester will be virtual, we are accepting applicants in and outside of the Bay Area.
Students are 11 - 18 years old and want to learn how to do photography with the help of a mentor. While learning how to make art, the students in First Exposures also develop academic and life skills. Our goal is to provide art education to underserved youth from a variety of backgrounds including those who come from families who could not otherwise afford photography classes, are in the foster care system, and/or who are underserved by the larger community in some way.
All accepted students will learn how to take photographs and exhibit them at the end of the year. Students are assigned experienced photography mentors who work with them at each session.
The application should take about 30 minutes to complete. We recommend finishing it in one sitting. If you need to return to it:
