Whether you're joining us for our Afterschool Photo Club, a vacation week or summer session, at THEIA Youth Photography Program our goal is to deliver a photo-based art education program in a fun, inspiring and energetic format. We believe that “learning by doing” as well as moving the mind and body makes a more lasting imprint. We also believe that fostering kids creativity builds self-awareness and confidence.
Children will be guided by experienced photographers/educators through fun, hands-on projects designed to engage and motivate while learning the basics of photography. Students learn the ever-lasting skill of image making as well as effective techniques to artistically express themselves. Classes typically have a 5:1 student/teacher ratio and in some cases, even lower. We feel keeping our groups smaller allows for more individual attention and cultivates stronger group participation.
During the summer, each week features a different format, building additional skills through fun projects and hands-on participation.
We also offer the THEIA Explorers Club: Photo Walk Friday (& picnic) which is optional and can be added on to any program week or taken as a stand-alone. During these walks, we will have fun shooting while exploring the world around us.
Wrapping inspiration around learning is the culture at THEIA. What emerges from our approach is an exciting exploration of individual creativity and self-expression through art. We encourage you to give us a call or stop by to find out what makes our program so unique!
