It was exciting to meet the Mission District kids who were already enrolled in a photography program at First Exposures, located in the funky Eye Gallery.
It provided a wonderful venue to spread out and create artwork to post on the Wish House, and Collette Sweeney, director, First Exposures/The Eye Gallery, expressed her gratitude for having us come in for the day to entertain the kids.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to show our students how they can express themselves not just through photography, but through art and writing as well,” Sweeney said. “It’s very powerful when you can combine the arts. Seeing their work posted on the Wish House was a real boost, too.”
