Join us in the Rita K. Hillman Education Gallery for the opening reception on Wednesday, May 27 at 6 pm. Presentation begins at 6:30 pm.

ICP's year-round Teen Academy program offers a range of opportunities for teenagers to develop their knowledge of photography. Courses range from ten-week classes in black-and-white and color darkroom instruction, summer digital intensives, to this yearlong program.

Teen Academy Imagemakers enables motivated high school juniors and seniors to advance their photography, writing, and public speaking skills while developing an awareness of the creative and professional possibilities in the field. This weekly after-school program provides teen photographers with guidance from some of New York's best teaching artists; field trips to museums, galleries, and studios; mentorship opportunities in the field; and full access to ICP's facilities. This program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing photography in college or in their future. At the end of the year, students will have created an extensive portfolio, including an artist’s statement and résumé. Their best work is featured in this gallery exhibition.
