NYC Teachers – middle school through high school. This workshop will be geared towards art and photography teachers, but educators of all subjects are welcome!
Made in NY Media Center by IFP

This workshop is about sharing best practices and workshopping strategies such as how to:
- Teach studio photography on a budget
- Source equipment and technology needed to teach photography
- Send students on assignment into the community
- Develop reporting plans and shot lists for student projects
- Lead writing activities to accompany photography
- Produce exhibitions (inside & outside your school) on a budget
Space is limited so registration is first-come, first-served. We will be in touch to confirm your participation.
I feel it’s so incredible that the work that I’ve done has just been turned into a workshop for middle school and high school kids. That’s everything I ever do my work for. If we are not teaching our youth to stand up for their own rights, and the rights of marginalized people around them, then this work is for naught. So to watch teachers do their thing with my work, it was so impressive to see this lesson come to fruition.
I’m a social worker in a special ed school, using a lot of creative stuff to do social and emotional work. It’s often me doing my own thing. This is exactly the environment of people doing the things that I want to do
We saw people who were doing thrilling work outside the classroom, but it only made me more excited to go back to my classroom because I feel that connection and it feels like a more authentic way to bridge that gap than probably anything I’ve ever done before.
