A program for high school students, the Student Photography Institute is comprised of four weekend classes (Fridays and Saturdays) during the academic year and a two-week session of classes in June. Each year, 18 high school students are selected to participate in the Photography Institute. The program gives students broad experiences in various areas of photography: the camera, seeing, lighting, composing, digital technology and portfolio preparation. Designed to assist students in vocational decision making, understanding visual communications and preparations for college-level image making, the program curriculum equally emphasizes the craft and the aesthetic of visual problem solving. Students concentrate on technical and formal excellence in their work as developing photographers and have their work presented in an exhibition in The Baker Museum.
