Photography Classes + Workshops

NOTICE: As of March 17, CPAC has temporarily closed the gallery and cancelled all onsite events until further notice, including classes and workshops. We are currently working to transition some classes online. Please check our Covid-19 Response page for the latest updates as the situation develops. 

Whether you’re new to photography or an established professional, CPAC’s photography classes and workshops will help you enhance your skills and develop your career. We offer courses year-round to suit your schedule, from one-day intensive workshops to four-week, immersive courses taught by experienced instructors in the fine art, commercial, and academic markets. Most courses are held in CPAC’s gallery, conveniently located in downtown Denver. Others take place at our partner facility the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design – and at off-site locations such as artist studios or Colorado’s famous outdoors.


Please note: we make a decision on whether a class will run or not one week prior to start date.
