21st Century Photography
Spotlight on Tony Toscano's Course for Deaf Students
The Siena School for Liberal Arts, in collaboration with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), is pleased to offer for the first time 21st Century Photography, a photography course for deaf students. It was designed to be open to both American and Italian students as a way to offer the chance to develop the skills of anyone with an interest in photography.
The course is taught by Tony Toscano, who for 37 years taught in the Arts and Imaging Department at RIT and NTID. He is fluent in English, Italian and ASL, making him an excellent bridge between cultures and languages. His course allows students to use new technology to capture their experiences in Siena, discovering the evolution of their work with the help of their peers. Working together to share ideas and improve their photography, students will develop the key skills of the course: innovation, collaboration and communication.
