Program Description   How are all cameras alike? Why do some photographs intrigue us more than others? In this interdisciplinary series of programs, middle school students are introduced to the science and art behind this extremely popular form of visual communication. Accompanying materials include in-program activity guides as well as teaching extensions for getting students launched on their own photographic projects.

Program Two: What Makes a Good Photograph? Explore what makes an interesting photograph by viewing the works of contemporary and historical photographers in the CMA collection.
