ICP’s Teen Academy programs offer a range of opportunities for teenagers to develop their knowledge of photography. Courses range from 10-week classes in black-and-white and color instruction to the yearlong intensive Imagemakers program focusing on professional applications.
Teen Academy Imagemakers enables 36 motivated high school juniors and seniors to advance their photography skills and develop an awareness of the creative and professional possibilities in the photography field. The weekly program provides students with guidance from some of New York's best teaching artists; field trips to museums, galleries, and studios; college-prep workshops; pre-professional assignments; mentorship opportunities in the field; and full access to ICP's facilities.
“We are proud to support the Imagemakers exhibition opening reception that showcases the outstanding work of these talented and passionate students,” said John Boyles, Chief Executive Officer, ING Financial Services LLC.
The curriculum is designed to cover a more in-depth study of photography including: self-portraiture, documentary study, photojournalism, personal vision, fashion, and studio work. At the completion of the program, students have created an extensive portfolio, including an artist's statement and résumé, and are honored in this gallery exhibition.
