UPDATE: Classes have moved to an online platform until further notice. Students will be working on assignments remotely during the next few weeks documenting their experience during the closures.  

Project: Identity Photography is a free digital photography intensive for 14-18 year old teens.

This unique 12-week program provides an opportunity to learn the basics of photography, composition, camera use, as well as editing tools in Adobe Photoshop. A culminating photobook and exhibition of artwork will be created and shared with the community.

Participants explore the medium of photography as a conduit for personal expression and storytelling. The group collaborates on a theme for the program and engage in workshops, visits with guest photographers, on and off-site shoots and excursions. Registration is first come, first serve and each registrant will be provided a camera and access to a Mac computer lab for the duration of the program. Photos will be exhibited on site at the Bethel Woods Event Gallery, via the internet/social media throughout the year, in print as well as at local galleries throughout Sullivan County.


Please Note: All seats are filled for the 2020 Project Identity Photography Program. Please apply to be placed on the wait list in case any spots become available. Our team will contact you with further details.
