Photography Classes + Workshops

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 on-site classroom, conveniently located in downtown Denver. Others take place at our partner facility, Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design – and at off-site locations such as artist studios or Colorado’s famous outdoors. In the summer, we offer programming for teens between the ages of 11 – 17.


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