“Since I like to take pictures, I like that the others in the class can understand the art in my pictures and the feelings I’m trying to show. The class lets us express ourselves.” – Crystal, 7th grade
“I like the class because it’s a chance to learn something new. Some people might think photography is boring, but once you start doing it, you find out it is actually interesting. You learn to see things differently and you get to meet new people.” – Anthony, 7th grade
