The National Photography Program enables youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through the appreciation of photography.
The National Photography Program is designed to help youth ages 6 to 18 go beyond taking snapshots and develop the necessary skills to take photographs that can really impact the viewer. The current popularity and accessibility of photography makes it a powerful means to engage youth of all ages in creative programming, while simultaneously teaching them skills they will use for the rest of their lives. For some youth, photography opens a door to creative self-expression that no other art form allows. Others may discover a career path.
