I simply love the program Critical Exposure offers to our students. It not only encourages them to develop an artists "eye" but also to be aware of the impact photographs can have on the world, with the emphasis on social justice and current issues.

Critical Exposure has made such a great addition to my after school program, the Multi-Ethnic Concerns Club for 9th-12th graders. The topics we cover are at times intense and sensitive, but Lauren and Fatimah are the perfect leaders for the conversations we have, and are never afraid of including important conversations that pop up on their own. They bring in such well thought out lessons and have a great incite into what the teenagers want to learn. I feel so fortunate to have them in my classroom.
