About Teen Art Camp 2018

The Albany Area Arts Council is announcing our third annual Gail Bales’ Teen Art Camp, an intensive and exciting program for teens interested in visual art! This year’s camp will focus on photographic arts. The AAAC will team with Albany State University who will be providing computers and Digital SLR cameras for students use. Participants will receive in-depth instruction and training through practice, lectures, projects, and collaborative instruction from Abigail Bellard, Assistant Professor of Photography and Graphics at Albany State University.

Students will explore a variety of modern photographic techniques, including basic functions of the 35 mm SLR digital camera and Adobe Photoshop as well as some age-old alternative processes including The Van Dyke Print and The Cyanotype Print. The students will also be introduced to Pinhole Photography, working in a darkroom, and much more!

Parents and students will join us the Friday afternoon of each session from 4-5 pm for a closing reception showcasing the artwork created throughout the week.

All art supplies are provided. Students only need to bring their lunch (onsite refrigerator and microwave) and dress in appropriate clothing to get dirty and make art! Each session is limited to 15 students so register early
