OUR BLUEPRINT

The Questioneers' program is a 3 year-long journey designed to cultivate young photographers and storytellers.

 

Each season focuses on an element—Wind in spring, Fire in summer, Earth in fall, and Water in winter—guiding children through progressively advanced lessons in camera work and storytelling.

 

From capturing the essence of wind in the blooming spring to exploring the significance of water in winter, the curriculum encourages exploration, creativity, and a deeper understanding of nature's cycles.

 

It's a holistic approach that blends learning with play, aiming to foster a global community of young, empathetic creators.
