This summer at Art Intersection we focused on bringing the spectrum of photography and art to Arizona kids and teens with our summer art program! We were pleasantly surprised at the greater Phoenix area youth turning out for our camps, especially with many of our teens coming from Tucson, North Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, and beyond!
Kids from ages 9-14 came out every Tuesday afternoon for mixed media, drawing, photography, and bookmaking. Art Intersection staff members taught students many new techniques to implement into their art-making and each week kids went home with finished pieces of work.
Our teens did an amazing job learning a lot about all forms of photography in our Introduction to Photography camp. More 14-17 year-olds further developed either their digital or darkroom skills in the Advanced Digital Photography and Advanced Darkroom Photography camps.
The quality of work and the amount each student accomplished during the one-week sessions was amazing! In the intro camp, students focused on the basics of photography and learned digital, darkroom, and alternative processes. In advanced digital, we moved on to outputting our images and making large prints, in addition to handmade books, and stop-motion animations. Teens in Advanced Darkroom heightened their darkroom printing skills, while also learning 4×5 view camera, toning, hand-coloring, and Van Dyke alternative processing.

Thanks to our awesome students and replica Watch parents for making our 2013 summer programming a huge success and we can’t wait to make art with you again next year!
