Beginning in March, Classic Cinemas’ North Riverside Mall Theatre will host the photography of the students of Oak Park’s “One Day Enrichment” program. This weekly program, held at Judson Baptist Church, provides children the opportunity to learn in a peer group from a professional instructor. From March 1st, 2013 through the end of the month, North Riverside Mall Theatre will feature the photography of students Daniel Fleigler, Annie Ginter, Emil Ginter, Adam Kelsey and Jean Taglia.

The art class at “One Day Enrichment” has been in high demand ever since its inception in 2006. In 2011 and 2012, students in junior high and high school were lucky enough to study photography under the instruction of Debra Funderwhite, an accomplished professional photographer. The March art display at North Riverside Mall Theatre is a small sample of these students’ work.

The work of these burgeoning photographers was influenced by a multitude of factors in their lives. “I’m inspired by both the intricacies and abstracts in nature, and by taking the familiar and making it unique,” says one of the featured students, Daniel Fleihler. Another student, Jean Taglia, says “I love the nature of photography and the unique experience of seeing the world from a different view.” Make sure to stop by the North Riverside Mall Theatre during March to see the work of these up and coming photographers.
