Hanging Out With Flower City Arts Center

by | Jul 16, 2021

Over the past two weeks I have gotten to hang out with the amazing teachers and awesome kids in the Flower City Arts Center Photography program, taking them on field trips in the neighborhoods in SEAC’s service area.

It was a wonderful experience and it was really rewarding to witness kids experiencing/learning something for the first time (like seeing the Rochester’s skyline from Cobbs Hill Park).

Some of the places we got to go: 490 Farmers, Washington Grove, Park Ave Neighborhood, Pearl-Meigs-Monroe Neighborhood, Neighborhood of the Arts Neighborhood, Swillburg Neighborhood, Cobbs Hill Park, South Wedge Neighborhood and more!

The teachers and kids are going to look through all the photos they’ve taken and choose ones for SEAC to proudly display on our website, print, and use on our Instagram page.

Here are a few not artistic photos I snapped on my phone! I’m looking forward to showing off all the awesome photos in the future!


A HUGE thank you to Create A Pizza for keeping our bellies full by generously donating pizza during our trips! The kids, staff, and I sure appreciated it!

Also a thank you to Kiki (SEAC’s Fundraising Coordinator) and Lori Wood (SEAC’s Bookkeeper) for assisting me by delivering the pizza and hanging out while I was on the walkabouts! I couldn’t have done it without you!

Be well
