We bring together art education, mentoring, self-expression and peer support to help you achieve your personal goals in life and contribute to your community as working artists.

We offer a 30-week photography program for adults and a 10-week program for teens. Classes are led by photography instructors with support from peer mentors and Ohio University photography students serving as volunteers and interns.

Does this sound like an experience that you’re looking for? Consider registering for an APP photography class today! Oh, and by the way, did we mention that there is no cost for the class for residents living in Athens, Hocking, and Vinton Ohio!
