Teenagers are invited to learn the basics of black-and-white photography. Students learn to make exposures with a manual 35mm film camera, process film, and create prints in ICP's darkrooms. During field trips and shooting assignments, students expand their understanding of the technical and aesthetic possibilities of photography. Students also discuss the work of historical and contemporary photographers. The curriculum includes: darkroom time, visual presentations, photographic and writing assignments, discussions, critiques, a guest artist visit, and a virtual field trip. By the end of the course, students develop a body of work and an accompanying artist's statement. The course will culminate in a final presentation for family and friends to celebrate students' achievements.

Need-based scholarships are available for all Teen Academy classes. To apply for a scholarship, use the registration link here.

Néstor Pérez-Molière

Néstor Pérez-Molière was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently resides in The Bronx, New York. His art entails a process of self-discovery; a series of confessionals revealing private conflicts; hoping towards catharsis. Through this cathartic process he hopes to connect with the viewer's struggles and depathologize negative feelings so that they can be seen as a source for political action rather than its antithesis. Néstor exposes mental health issues like depression, dysmorphia, food addictions, and loneliness: describing their mechanisms, scrutinizing their origins, and illuminating the impossibility of fixing them. His practice mainly takes place in the realm of photography but has also incorporated performance, drawing, video, installation, and intaglio techniques into his works.

He received an MFA from Hunter College and holds a BSc in Botany. He was part of the Artist in the Marketplace 2017 and Creative Capital's Taller 2019 mentorship programs, and was included in The Bronx Museum of the Art's Fourth Biennial. He has exhibited at the Museo de las Américas, the Clemente Soto Vélez, Longwood Gallery, and the Liga de Estudiantes de Artes de San Juan, Puerto Rico. Interested in becoming an educator, he currently teaches digital and darkroom photography, as well as media literacy at the Parsons School of Design, Art Academy of Cincinnati, International Center of Photography, THE POINT CDC, and StrudelMediaLive.
