Snap Lab! Our Photo Art Workshop For Teens. says
The Transformer Station is proud to introduce a new art making program just for teens: SnapLab! SnapLab is an intensive, hands-on, and fun series of workshops starting in April 2015.

The Transformer Station is the newest hub for contemporary art and culture on Cleveland’s near West side. We strive to make our space a place for everyone to connect with contemporary art, especially the photographic art of today! In other words, the photos and images being created by world class artists right now!

We love being at the forefront of conversations about these often experimental images and we think teens are the perfect group to share in that dialog because they live in a world of images all the time: on line, in print, on their phones! Not only do they live in that world, they’re helping to shape it…. but how and why?

Over the course of four consecutive Saturdays, teens will be engaged in the process of figuring out how to better understand the messages, hidden or overt, in the constant influx of imagery that surrounds and is created by us all.

Learning is best when doing, so teens will take their own original photos, using only the digital devices we provide. They will be asked to responding to visual challenges and by doing so, workshop participants will be able to begin to crack the code that both successful artists and advertisers already know: a picture is worth 1,000 words!

SnapLab is limited to 10 participants for each session. Each of two 4 week series will begin and end at The Transformer Station. The other two Saturdays will be dedicated to exploring the historic Hingetown / Ohio City neighborhoods via photography. The last SnapLab of each series will include a final project presentation of each students best images.

SnapLab is made possible by a generous grant provided by the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation and will culminate it’s first year in a celebration for all program alumni next January, 2016.
