Nick Azzaro: Ypsilanti Community High Photography


WEMU’s Lisa Barry recently visited The Learning Studio”, a Ypsilanti Community High School classroom where Nick Azzaro (BFA 2004) keeps students engaged with photography.

As schools and the education system continue to evolve, what’s being taught in the classroom has come a long way from just reading, writing and arithmetic.
