What We Do
Creating Exposure Through the Arts using the arts, primarily photography, to mentor, educate and empower young artists while providing opportunities for exposure by enabling them to share their artistic expression. We create after-school programs in underserved areas independently as well as for partnering non-profit organizations throughout Mecklenburg County, (i.e.YMCA and P.A.L.). We teach youth about the arts, expose them to new experiences and provide a vehicle for a diverse group of individuals to showcase, preserve, cultivate and promote artistry.
