Join us this August for a two-week in-person summer workshop series covering all things design! Girlz by Design (GBD) invites high school students (ages 14-18) to discover digital art fields and creative tech careers on weekdays from 2-5pm. The program is led by instructors from GBD, a nonprofit that works to empower, motivate, and educate young creatives in high schools across the DMV region by preparing them to succeed in the new digital era. Click here for more info.

Teen Photography Camp (ages 12 – 18)
Two week camp (8/9 – 8/20)
2 – 5 p.m.

The two-week in-person camp is designed to encourage engagement with our physical surroundings through the interactive nature of analog photography. We’ll support that with group discussions of the works of influential photographers. Students need no previous photography experience and will learn how to shoot, develop, and print black and white film photographs. All materials are provided and the camp ends with a COVID-safe outdoor group exhibition. Click here for more info.
