Youth Programs

Designed to cultivate visual literacy through photography and photobook creation, all of Aperture’s youth programs support the development of observational, reasoning, language arts, and image-creation competencies. These programs foster an appreciation for the photographic medium as a vehicle for self-expression and an understanding of photography’s role in documenting history and culture.
The 2013/14 program was made possible by grants from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, the Manhattan Community Grant Program, and the Pinkerton Foundation, with support provided by Grand St. Settlement and Hudson Guild. Aperture has received additional support from the Pinkerton Foundation and a gift from Agnes Gund to expand this program for the next academic year into additional schools and Beacon Centers.
