over 5 years ago I started a community photography club in the small area I live in. We show the beauty of our valley and all around. We hope to show others the beauty of the world so they don't want to trash our earth. One of the things that are our goal is to encourage the young artist in elementary and high school is to believe in themselves and have the confidence to follow their dreams and be the artist they want to be. These days children grow up with drugs pushed at them, living in poverty and abuse right here in America. We want to help them see beyond that and to greater things that they can do. We are a village in this country and helping the children starts with the adults rebuilding their own lives and learning to follow their own dreams so they can teach the youth.
