3 Oct, 2009 - 24 Jan, 2010

The Museum of Photographic Arts is proud to present Through the Lens, the fourth annual youth exhibition, which features the artwork of over 80 students from San Diego, ranging from 3rd–12th grades.

The showcased photographic works were produced by student participants of the photography and filmmaking programs offered by MoPA’s Education Department. MoPA’s educational programs reach thousands of San Diego students every year. Each program is designed to develop students’ visual literacy skills, allowing them to analyze, interpret, and communicate in the countless visual mediums they encounter.

Through the Lens presents a unique opportunity to view the world through the perspective of San Diego’s youth. These images showcase their creativity and artistic expression, while demonstrating the impact of photography as a powerful tool for communicating ideas and emotions.
