Free After-School Teen Photo Program

Teen Photo is a free after-school program open to any Philadelphia public high school student. It is a transformative experience for each teen who participates. Every student receives 8 months of full, free access to PPAC’s equipment, materials, and expert teaching staff as well as a DSLR camera to take home for the entire school year. Together, students share images and ideas about their lives, build self-confidence as well as new technical skills.

Over 70% of our student’s schools do not offer photography classes. Learning to think critically and creatively through photography opens up a love of learning and helps them grow in every aspect of their academic and personal lives.

Teen Photo runs from September to May with weekly meetings one day per week. Students involved in the program will go out on field trips to art exhibitions around the city, create a public art project, a book of their classes photos and have the chance to exhibit and sell their work in PPAC’s gallery. PPAC provides a DSLR for them to borrow and free supplies.
