CPR's Teen Institute gives kids the tools to express themselves through photography, interact with their environment, and learn what it means to be an artist.
The Cleveland Print Room (CPR) is proud to offer youth photography classes that enrich and educate. Students can choose between our two introductory classes or the more intensive, year-long Arts Mastery Program.
CPR's Teen Institute serves over 400 students, grades 4 to 12 annually, with the goal of fostering self expression and community engagement among a diverse group of students. Teen Institute offers a wide range of opportunities for students to develop their knowledge of photography, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking.
