Summer 2015 Youth Programs in the Arts:
Young Photographers

Young Photographers

Grades 4–8

Typical Day

Using digital cameras, students learn the art and science of photography. Students learn first to select and frame subject matter from campus locations and home communities. Working in digital labs, they will convert these everyday scenes into works of art, using Adobe Photoshop software to enhance and refine images. Students learn what visually makes a good photograph and how to transform that vision onto paper.

This program is held in the college’s Visual Arts Building—160,000 square feet of art-making opportunity. This building is one of the largest facilities of its kind in the Northeast, providing students with superb studio environments, as well as state-of-the-art software and hardware specifically geared to the demands of professional design and art making.

To broaden skills and exposure to the arts, Young Photographers can be combined with Minecraft™ Designers and Modders, Code Breakers and App Designers, Creating Comic Books, Young Actors, Young Architects, Shakespeare Workshop, Young Journalists (new!), Young Filmmakers, Creative Vocal Lab, and/or Vocal Intensive to make for a well-rounded summer experience.

Young Photographers Session I: June 29–July 10
Monday–Friday, 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
$1,200 for the first registration
$1,080 for the second registration in the family, Purchase College employees and alumni, and early registrations (received by May 8, 2015)
