At the Rush Education Program and Gallery in Sunset Park, at-risk students joined teaching artists like renowned photographer Jamel Shabazz to develop their artistic skills.

For the current exhibition, “More Than Black & White,” students honed their photography skills alongside adult family members, documenting their lives using cameras provided by the Rush program.

“It helps boost their self-esteem,” said Shabazz on opening night, as he proudly surveyed the photo exhibition — including work by Justin Hill (“Untitled,” above right) and Kerry Presley (“Taxi Driver,” below right).

It’s also quite an achievement for teenagers to put on an art show with their own parents in relative harmony.

“More Than Black & White” is at the Rush Gallery at PS371K (360 36th St., between Third and Fourth avenues in Sunset Park) through June 28. For information, call (718) 230-5002.
