School Day Session: 10am – 1:30pm; After School Session: 4pm – 6pm

Photoville’s Education Day is a unique art education initiative in its fifth year, that is completely free to attend. The program gives local middle school and high school students an inside look into the exhibitions, artists and curators that make up Photoville, New York City’s premier pop-up photo destination, and the power of visual storytelling.

Registration for Education Day 2017 is now open! Sign up by Aug 18 to bring your middle school or high school class on a field trip to Photoville for an educational day of photography and storytelling! The program is completely free for NYC students to attend.


1. Artist-led Exhibition Tour

Your students will view and discuss a diverse group of photography exhibitions, ranging in theme from historical to current social justice issues.

2. Peer Photographers Seminar

Your students will hear from local youth photographers participating in photo programs. They will learn how their peers use photography, and how they can get involved in these programs.

3. Teacher Development & Resources

Teachers may participate in a one-day professional development workshop on using photography to teach social studies and language arts. The workshop will take place early October 2017, date TBD. Teachers will also receive a Resource Packet with images and discussion questions to teach in conjunction to Photoville exhibitions.

NYC students (middle and high school age)! We welcome school groups, community groups, and extracurricular youth programs. Priority will be given to NYC public school groups for the School Day Session.
