Nancy Grace Horton: Learning to See

Nancy Grace Horton's Learning to See programs are school and community participatory projects that simultaneously teach the history and art of photography and document local events, traditions, neighborhoods and or can be self explorations for each student.

Learning To See programs take place over several days, include from a dozen to hundreds of students, and involve participants in learning new skills, exploring their environments, and appreciating their culture.

During the programs, individual participants gain new artistic skills as they learn to look at their world through the lens of a camera or use history methods of image making, all project a taylored to the school or community.

When viewed as a whole, the combined images become a photographic record of a community's environment and culture that is discussed by the participants and displayed to the public in exhibits and books. Outcome can be photographic exhibitions, handmade books, individual images, large mosaics and can have a focue on the town, school, personal identity or work alongside the curriculum, for instance Farm to Fork.

Learning to See projects have been conducted since 2001 both locally, (Concord Monitor-Better than homework: Hopkinton students snap pictures of their daily lives) (Concord Monitor- Portsmouth Photographer begins Residency)(Spotlight -Capturing Sights of Interest/Profile, Herald -Portsmouth Middle School Kids Get the Picture), as well as internationally, (Learning to See project in Mexico,Banderas News.).
