Eudora, Arkansas Students Tell Their Story Through Photography

Eudora students were taught how to use photography to express their views on their educational opportunities and challenges.   Martha Molina, an Arkansas Arts Council Arts in Education consultant, conducted a three-day workshop for the youth.  A sampling of their work is on exhibit at the J. Austin White Cultural Center in Eudora.  Community members and parents are invited to a reception to view the photography on Thursday, July 26, at 5 pm.

The training was coordinated by RCA’s southeast organizer, Tanya Broadnax.
