Classes For Teens & Kids

Due to overwhelming popular demand, we’ll be offering youth-only programs starting this Summer, and continuing into the Fall.  These classes are inspiring and empowering journeys into the expressive and narrative potential of photography for younger students.  

Beyond developing technical skills, BKC’s youth program is designed to create a more well-rounded individual through creative problem solving, self-discovery and personal storytelling, exposure to ideas, artists, and real-world spaces, as well as fun and positive group experiences.  We believe the best ideas are the ones still to be discovered, and that young minds are the greatest conduit for innovative thinking.

Class sizes are small and intimate, with a maximum of 12 students per session.  Our staff of bright and energetic photo teachers have extensive experience in youth education, child development and creative learning.
