About the program:
This workshop, mentored by Tisch Professors and advanced NYU Photography students, offers free digital photography classes to talented and highly motivated high school imagemakers. Designed to support and enhance their current training, participants will engage in many of the components that comprise the digital image-making curriculum of the BFA program at Tisch Photography and Imaging. Cameras and supplies are provided. Fifteen to twenty young artists will be selected to participate in this free program which is held either on Saturdays or two afternoons during the week from 4-6 from February to May. Applicants, in their freshmen, sophomore, and junior year, from the five boroughs of New York City as well as from Westchester County, Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut and Philadelphia are encouraged to apply.
What is a Future Imagemaker?
A Future Imagemaker is someone who makes images, and creates visual content for paper or screen-based media in a variety of context, including art, journalism, documentary, fashion or other. The field of photography and imaging has expanded as our visual world has expanded. If you find yourself drawn to capturing people, scenes, events, and other visual aspects of life through the lens, you may be a Future Imagemaker.
Who should apply for this program?
Students who are in their freshman, sophomore or junior years of high school who imagine that they will be a Future Imagemaker should apply. Because the program involves travel to Greenwich Village, students of the Saturday program will most likely live in cities and towns within 2 hours of New York, while students of the Monday/Thursday program will most likely live within the 5 boroughs or a 30-minute commuting distance.
What is the schedule for the 2014 program?
The program runs in two different sessions: 12 Saturdays from 10 am until 4 pm OR Mondays and Thursdays from 4-6pm. Our Monday/Thursday program runs weekly from February 6 to May 9. Our Saturday program takes place weekly from February 1 to May 10.
