Two audio slideshows complete and I am happy with the end results. In the previous project on Domonique Whitehurst, and intern for ArtWorks for Milwaukee I enjoyed speaking to the youth of Milwaukee, Wis., but on this project, I enjoyed speaking to an educator who really put his students needs first. 

Jon Brown is the lead artist and mentor for ArtWorks' eight interns. He assists the students in designing anti-drug and violence campaigns and developing skills necessary for them to achieve success in the art and design world. Brown’s favorite aspect is working with the students to develop new ideas and supporting the growth of the arts for youth, something he feels is lacking in the artist community and public at large. 

ArtWorks mission statement, is to teach students with underperformance in high school that they can achieve employment success. ArtWorks provides interns with a mentor and resources that are often professional artists. 

For this portion of the project I was again, lucky enough, to be partnered with Rebecca French, a photo journalist at Marquette University and for the Marquette Journal. Her insight on photos was again wonderful and the project would not be as successful as it is without her. This has been a wonderful journey and I really enjoyed doing this type of work, it is definitely in the plans to continue to do these types of projects. 
 
 
One of the most enjoyable things about completing this project was the ability to speak with a  youth from Milwaukee and his struggles with academics and not having a creative outlet at his high school. First the students were shy and we didn't know if we would be able to single one out, but it soon became apparent that one intern would be the best fit for our slideshow and audio compilation for Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service. 

Domonique Whitehurst began his internship with ArtWorks for Milwaukee this past fall. As an intern, he develops creativity skills, produces his own anti-drug and violence campaigns, and works with a seven other interns.

For this project I was partnered with Rebecca French, a photo journalist at Marquette University and for the Marquette Journal. She provided insight as to what angles would be best for photos, which chronological order would be most beneficial for the slideshow and whether class was needed or not. Having someone who is more experienced with photography than myself was wonderful.
