Summer Workshops for Teens


Each summer, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center offers workshops designed exclusively for teens interested in learning more about photography. Led by qualified instructors with decades of teaching experience, classes provide a solid foundation in film and digital photography, with courses in darkroom technique, portraiture, lighting and more.

Most courses take place at CPAC’s gallery. Others are held at our partner facilities – The Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) or Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) – and at off-site locations such as Denver Art Museum, Denver Public Library, or Colorado’s famous outdoors.

Please note: In response to COVID-19 we have reduced class sizes in order to maintain safe distance practices. We are planning to hold the workshop in person, but if needed we may transition online or cancel it as it gets closer to the event. Please visit our response page for more information.
