Designed for students of all levels, this course focuses on developing a body of photographic work. Through individual assignments and critiques, students discuss editing and sequencing their images in order to build upon a topic of their own choosing. Students are encouraged to explore and expand upon ideas of theme, visual narrative, and image consistency and quality. Class critiques foster confidence in students as they discuss their work in front of their peers and reflect upon their progress. We will also review and discuss existing bodies of work from current and past photographers for inspiration? The curriculum includes: darkroom time, visual presentations, photographic and writing assignments, discussions, critiques, a guest artist visit, and a field trip. By the end of the course, students develop a cohesive 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, please visit: https://www.icp.org/school/teen-academy.

Course Level/Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. No prior photography experience is needed for these foundation courses.
