See the world through the lens of photography this summer!

The Arab American National Museum (AANM) invites you to immerse yourself in art and photography this summer, with our SURA Arts Academy Summer Camp (in-person)! AANM’s oldest running youth program, SURA Arts Academy helps youth learn the art of photography as a tool of self expression, during this 1-week summer camp designed to help students share stories about their lives, community and culture, using elements of growth and empowerment. Cameras provided by AANM, however students are welcome to bring their own cameras if available.

The curriculum includes: visual presentations, photographic challenges/activities, discussions, editing tricks, guest artist visits and daily field trips around metro Detroit. Bring a bag lunch and get ready to take in the photographic scenes around metro Detroit. There will be a pizza celebration on the last day.

This year’s theme focuses on land and our surrounding environment. Students work will be celebrated in the annual SURA Student Photography Exhibition, Fall 2024.
