The Emphasis Project

The Emphasis Project provides hands on experiences to emerge teen artist in real world projects. The students will be able to participate in producing a video and/or photo-shoot for a final project. They will have guided lessons in wardrobe styling, videography, photography, and managing projects. The students will collectively create a vision for the project that represents how they view what is happening in their communities. 

Collectively, everyone will learn and participate in the different aspects of  producing a professional artist video and/or photo; however, on the day of the shoot the students will be divided into groups that most intrigue them about the project.  Once the photo-shoot is edited and completed the photos will be sent in to a Chicago based magazine. Every student who participates in the development of the project will receive a copy of the work to begin a comprehensive diverse portfolio that can be used for career and college applications. The skills and project that the students will develop will allow them to compete in a global market.   


Sign your student up at one of our South Side locations above through the Chicago Park District.
