Veterans Workshop Series

Launched by CPAC and our partners in 2017, the Veterans Workshop Series provides advanced photographic education to Denver-area military Veterans, free of charge.

 

Over 5 months of workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions, participants learn to refine technical skills, hone ideas into a body of work, create a portfolio, write about their work, and present their projects to the community in a public exhibition at CPAC’s gallery.

 

The program includes training in digital editing software; composition, lighting, and design; marketing; portfolio development; preparing for an exhibition; and much more. Courses are taught by established artists and leaders in Denver’s photography community. The program was developed in partnership with local veteran-led organizations including Art of War Project and Task Force ISO.

 

After completing the program, students can enter the professional fine art photography world, develop a photographic business, or further their artistic practice at an advanced level. Graduates have gone on to sell work, attend professional portfolio reviews, and exhibit at local galleries.

HOW TO APPLY

CPAC is no longer accepting applications for the 2019 Veterans Workshop Series (August 2019 – January 2020). If you are a U.S. military Veteran with a passion for photography, we strongly encourage you to apply for next year.
