PI: Photography is a digital photography immersion program for high school teens. Within the 12 week program the teens will use digital photography as their artistic vehicle for expression. We will focus on how to produce, manipulate and curate images through history and modern day techniques.
The attendance policy for this program is strictly enforced. Teens are allotted up to two absences during the program. This policy is in place to build professional skills (time management and communication). In addition, missing more then two sessions will be challenging for anyone to keep pace with lessons. During the program participants will be held accountable for a point-and-shoot camera, tripod, flash drive and other equipment with the opportunity to keep the camera at the end! At the conclusion of the program the group will have produced a photo book and photography exhibition with their original imagery. The photography exhibition will be on Tuesday May 21st from 6-9PM in the Event Gallery at Bethel Woods with a potential additional exhibition to be hosted at the Hurleyville Arts Centre.
