About this Campaign

My name is Jennifer Voogd and I am one of four photography teachers at Wheaton Warrenville South High School.  We offer photography 1, 2, Studio, and AP.  Photography is our largest elective in the Fine Arts Department and typically runs around 18 sections a year.  Currently, the photography 1 students only take images on film cameras and on their cell phones or Chromebooks.  We would love to expand the Photography 1 programs to include enough digital cameras for a classroom set to include digital photography in the curriculum for the Photography 1 program.    

As we live in an increasingly digital and visual world, learning to shoot manually with a digital camera, download images, and edit these images with commercial software is now a necessary life skill.  By adding 15 digital cameras to update this program, this allows our students to work in pairs during class to take pictures.  Photography 1 is currently one of the largest electives at Wheaton-Warrenville South with 10-11 sections a year.  We look forward to giving our students this digital experience at the beginner level to equip them with skills that will allow them to flourish in our digital society.  

Thanks!

Mrs. Voogd, Mr. Mory, Ms. Davidson, and Mr. Fazio
