This 36-week Residency Program focuses on photography and college preparation and is intended for students who wish to deepen their understanding and passion for the visual arts.

 

In this program, you will learn how to use a camera, how to use light, how to find your vision, how to use your voice to tell a story and more. This will be done through group and one-on-one instruction in a professional photography studio. You will get to meet some of the leaders working in the visual industry; photographers, gallery owners, photo editors at major magazines, newspapers and online, art directors at ad agencies, bookmakers, all there to help you that day and in the future.

 

You will develop a professional portfolio that you can use for college admissions and professional opportunities. Your work will be displayed at the end of the year in our Annual Photography Exhibition at a public venue attended by leading industry professionals and your family.

 

This is a multi-year program that we hope you will take advantage of over several years. As your skill becomes more advanced work opportunities will present themselves.
