Each week, typically on Tuesday and/or Wednesday mornings, U School students (grades 4-9) receive a lesson about art and photography in their U School classroom. Students learn about what art is, and fundamentals in artwork/photography such as composition, colour, and perspective. U School students then use digital cameras and are split into small groups with volunteers. The students and volunteers then spend approximately an hour together exploring campus through an artistic lens, taking photos that capture campus and elements of art from their perspective. Later in the afternoon, U School students get the change to do a photo editing session.
