About Picture Your World:
Since 2002, Green Spaces Alliance has introduced thousands of children to photography and the wonders of nature through the Picture Your World Youth Photography Program. Starting in September and ending in April, Green Spaces’ program instructor, a professional photographer, and a naturalist lead workshops that teach students the basics of photography and build their appreciation for the natural world. The workshops take place at beautiful outdoor sites throughout the San Antonio area, such as Government Canyon, Medina River Natural Area, Warbler Woods, and Friedrich Wilderness Park. Weekend workshops are held monthly on a Sunday afternoon and are open to all area youth ages 8-18. Green Spaces provides digital cameras to students who wish to borrow one, or participants may bring their own. Picture Your World provides a unique opportunity for youth to engage with nature, hone their observational skills and explore aspects of science and art while creating a visual memory of their day.
