Images are everywhere, but how do you tell a story through your photographs? This one-week intensive digital photography class introduces teens to the basic principles of digital image-making, from composing to exploring the effects of light. Through photographic assignments whether staying at home or venturing outside, students expand their understanding of the technical and aesthetic possibilities of digital capture and output on the subject matter of their choice. Through writing exercises, different techniques will be presented for using words with images. Critiques led by faculty and guest artists will foster confidence in storytelling, as students discuss their work and reflect upon their progress. By the end of the course, students will have developed a series of images with accompanying text that tell their stories!



ICP’s Teen Academy program welcomes teenagers ages 14–19 from across the country and around the world to develop their skills as leaders and visual storytellers in a range of online classes. All curricula is youth-centered and includes: photographic and writing assignments, digital open lab time, visual presentations, discussions, critiques, a virtual field trip, a guest artist visit, and a culminating presentation for family and friends celebrating the students’ achievements.
