Here’s everything you need to know:
What is Pablove Shutterbugs?
The signature arts program of The Pablove Foundation, the Shutterbugs program introduces children living with cancer to the art of photography in order to increase their sense of joy, encourage their creative thinking, foster their self-esteem, and develop their independence. Guided by trained professional photography mentors, the children work hands-on to learn the principles and techniques of photography.
Why should KCAD get involved?
This would be a tremendous opportunity for anyone in the KCAD community interested in photography to partner with organizations like DeVos Children’s Hospital to make a HUGE difference in the lives of brave children suffering from cancer. If KCAD wins the right to host the program, LIVESTRONG© will provide financial support and all the resources necessary to train volunteers to be teachers and mentors in the program.
