AdvertisementJoin us this Summer as we launch our first Photography Summer Camp (Detrás del Lente) at Artpace!
During Summer Camp, Artpace will become a classroom + art studio for young artists to create and explore their abilities through photography. Workshops will emphasize conceptual and documentary work through: light painting, street photography, alternative forms of printing (leaf printing & cyanotype), portraiture, and technical work (freeze motion and extended blur). Be sure to register early as classes will fill up quickly.
Bring your camera! This is the camera that you will be learning on and will use after the program has ended. Nikon digital SLRs will be provided for those needing a camera.

Organizer of Photography Summer Camp (Detrás del Lente) at Artpace
Using his 13-year experience as a public-school educator and 16 years as a freelance photographer, Francisco Cortés has developed and instructed youth photography programs and workshops across the city, such as “Detras del lente” and “The Light Catchers Society.” Working with organizations such as The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, San Anto Cultural Arts, San Antonio Youth Centers, San Antonio Independent School District, and the McNay Museum, Cortés has been helping children see through a lens for over a decade.
Francisco Cortés is a San Antonio-based artist, known for his photojournalistic storytelling: ranging from pensive moments to civil unrest, to the experiences of immigrants in their alternating contexts. Cortés' formal training has been in Photojournalism and Chicano Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. With film photography and darkroom printing techniques as his foundation, Cortés uses the contexts of his many environments to shape the manner in which he looks through the lens, altering his work with only a minimalist approach; accentuating, but not manipulating truths.
