New Outlook Academy's Photography Class had an amazing opportunity to visit the Pittsburgh Art Museum and the Teenie Harris exhibit. Teenie Harris is an African American photojournalist who worked for the Pittsburgh Courier from the early 1930’s through the 1970’s. His work (more than 80,000 negatives) is considered one of the most in depth and important documentations of minority life in that era. Domonique Luster, who is the archivist for the collection, and Charlene Foggie-Barnett, who is featured in many of Teenie Harris’ photos as an infant, personally gave the girls a tour of the gallery and spoke with them about the current exhibit of his work.

In addition to the incredible learning experience, the student photographers also practiced their skills, photographing their outing. We look forward to seeing those images once they have the opportunity to review and edit their work.

Experiential learning... just another way that New Outlook Academy is developing amazing young women.
