Project Snapshot, Cleveland Print Room’s signature photography program, is a 16-week arts workshop for high school students in Cleveland that fosters creativity through analog photography, giving students access to film cameras and teaching visual literacy. Students are taught the skills to hand-process their film in the CPR community darkroom where they are trained in the art of traditional developing and printing. The goal of the program is to inspire students to pick up a camera, make pictures, share their world, and learn what it means to be an artist. Through our partnership with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, this project also focuses on students' self-awareness and identity development through visual storytelling.

All of the students will have their work displayed in the culminating student showcase exhibition at CPR's gallery on Wednesday, April 17 from 5 to 8pm. Additionally, this May, work produced by students will be put on exhibit for one year at the Ohio Civil Rights Commission offices located in Columbus, Ohio.

This project is funded through the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission along with the Cedars Legacy Fund, and is taught by Hadley K Conner, a Cleveland-based artist, musician and educator, and Aja Grant, a C.S.U. graduate with a B.A. in Psychology and Art.

Part of the Cleveland Foundation’s Arts Mastery Program, Teen Institute this program is also funded by the Cleveland Foundation, the George Gund Foundation and the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation.
