GEMS World Academy–Chicago believes in providing students with extracurricular offerings that allow them to explore outside interests and passions. One of those offerings is our Photography Club, which has just starting posting photos on the school’s Instagram account.
The club meets each week after school. The participants learn how to compose, shoot and edit photos, with special attention paid to topics like lighting and perspective. The club takes photographs in a variety of environments in and around the school.
Dominica Fisher, the adult leader of the club, said she hopes that club members will gain the confidence to begin entering their work in area photo contests. In the meantime, they are posting their photos on the school’s Instagram page. Go here to see our students’ amazing work!
In addition to the Photography Club, GEMS’ extracurricular program includes sports, robotics, dance and other activities. Go here for more information.
