Art Works grew out of a volunteer position at The Education project (TEP) where I was teaching photography to at-risk and homeless youth. During a meeting at TEP I suggested approaching Polaroid about having the students who were showing a serious interest in photography continue in a more focused project. With Art Works they further developed their creative and intellectual skills and expanded their perception that art is something that is made by and for others.

The teenagers were paired with professional artists and then met in workshops designed to help them come together as a team and to clarify their ideas. They then created images on the giant Polaroid 20” x 24” camera. The immediacy of the Polaroid process was a potent way of further stimulating enthusiasm, ideas, and a free flow of self -expression.

In each location where Art Works was exhibited photography workshops for local youth were produced in partnership with community non-profits and the education staff of the host institution.
