Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

1-Week Graphic Design Camp for Teens




Learn the fundamentals of graphic design at a truly electric New York City pace at the New York Film Academy’s 1-Week Graphic Design Camp, a hands-on immersion experience that quickly teaches campers the skills they need to begin their journey as aspiring designers.

This summer camp focuses on studio and computer software courses that teach essential graphic design processes like concept development, typographic hierarchy, image creation and development, and layout fundamentals. For extra inspiration, campers visit museums and galleries to explore incredible works through the lens of graphic design. Lead by our internationally recognized faculty of working designers, students will experience design in a dynamic, hands-on, and collaborative setting.
