Portrait of Paterson Youth Photography Exhibit

January 4 - 31

The Paterson Youth Photography Project (P.Y.P.P.). P.Y.P.P. is one of the Youth Development Programs at Oasis - a Haven for Women and Children. The Wyckoff Family YMCA is proud to support Oasis, the arts, and youth development.

Most inner-city kids have little or no experience with photography, art exhibits, or field trips and often lack enrichment programs in their schools. The kids benefit from a mentoring program like P.Y.P.P. because they are smart, enthusiastic, and creative.

Volunteers teaching digital photography to 8-13 year olds at Oasis on Saturday mornings, help students showcase their work in this traveling exhibit, entitled Portrait of Paterson. Proceeds go to P.Y.P.P.

The framed works are for sale.
