All Salt students will showcase their portfolios at our annual gallery show. This year we will have our first graduating class of college students. They will be presenting their senior portfolios alongside our high school residency students and workshop students. The event will be held at the Art Directors Club from 6:30-9:30pm on Thursday, June 11, 2015. More information coming soon!
Check out our selection of 100’s of student prints! All the proceeds from the sales go directly back to the students’ field trips, college visits, and equipment costs. NYC SALT makes our program 100% free for all of our students. Each student receives a Nikon DSLR camera kit when they join the program. We have an annual retreat to the Frost Valley YMCA Camp for team building. And we take the students for college visits to Washington DC, Boston and upstate New York. Student’s learn to use Epson printers, Wacom tablets, and are proficient in Adobe Lightroom. All of the revenue from print sales makes teaching our students at the highest level with the best equipment possible.
This year because of the generosity of our donors through the HIVE Crowdrise Challenge sponsored by the Mozilla Foundation, we took our class of 16 young resident photographers to the Frost Valley YMCA Camp for a weekend of team building. The played games, ziplined, went on a giant swing, a high ropes course and a three hour hike to a water fall. There was even a pillow fight. The purpose of the trip was to create stronger relationships between the kids and their mentors. We did some light painting at night and roasted marshmallows around a big bonfire. It was an incredible weekend! Thank you for making this trip possible!
Austin Canales had an amazing leadership and teaching experience this past Summer. He got to
teach middle school students in Fort Greene at Camp SALT. He had never seen so much potential displayed
by a group of young kids ages 9 to 11. Austin recently won 8 scholastic art awards for his photography. Four of the awards are Gold Key awards. He will have one of his Gold Key photos on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art this Spring.
