The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce its next workshop for youth in "Youth Photo Boot Camp: Self Exploration through Photography," to take place Saturday, March 25, 2023, and in support of the organization's 9th Annual Allegany National Photography Competition & Exhibition.

About the Workshop:
During the past few years the world has changed in unexpected ways, impacting our everyday lives. In this workshop, student photographers will explore how light and color can be manipulated to change atmosphere and mood of photographs. Participants will use these techniques to create both a traditional and non-traditional portrait using personal items arranged in a still life that represents how the pandemic has had a profound personal impact on them.
