"In Full Bloom"

Digital Photography & Art classes @ Elmcor Senior Center at St. Marks (Jackson Heights, Qns)

With the support of NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (NYC DCA) we bring SU-CASA programming to seniors in the Elmhurst/Corona/Jackson Heights area.  Each week they pARTicipate in digital photography and acrylic painting instruction. From day one these "students" put their creative muscles to good work, producing amazing works of arts, and learning how to capture the amazing people and world around them.

The Pupil Project

2018-19 School Year

Warm weather and the great outdoors!  The spring season allowed us to take it "to the streets" and let our participants capture the beauty and culture of their surroundings.   This new school year we continue giving children grades 3-12 the opportunity to see their world through a captive lens.  

We're taking shots and making movies! The Pupil Project 2.0 will be in full STEAM, building cameras and using them to capture moments and movements in our communities.


The Pupil Project partnered

with PS/IS 270Q The Gordon Parks School

to support their students in the national
