The Picture Your World Youth Photography provides outdoor nature photography workshops that encourage ages 8-18 to engage with nature through the camera lens. Photographing our land and the flora and fauna that live there motivate youth to follow their curiosity and spend more time outdoors. The goals of the program are: to introduce a diverse audience to the wonderful outdoor nature surroundings in San Antonio, To teach students digital photography and hone observational skills, and to build the next generation of environmental sustainability advocates!
Participation opportunities include monthly Sunday afternoon workshops at natural areas around San Antonio, and at Bulverde Oaks Nature Preserve, weekday programming for Title 1 Elementary schools, homeschool, and non-profit youth organizations, and our annual spring city-wide Nature Photography Exhibition.
“This program has inspired my child to look at nature more closely and slow down to appreciate its beauty."
