The Photo Center Northwest
NOW IS THE TIME -- Tap into your creative side this summer, enroll in a photography class! Whether you need to learn your camera, get your hands wet in the darkroom, or expand your practice through more challenging conceptual and practical offerings -- there is something here for you. We know that summer is a busy time so you can choose from week-long classes, 5 week classes, 8 week classes, and workshops. If one of these doesn't work for you, but there's still a goal you have for summer, consider one-on-one digital tutoring.
Thesis Exhibition: Daniel Hawkins, Chris Letcher & Patrick Names June 3 - July 15 Every year the Photo Center celebrates the graduates of the Certificate in Fine Art Photography program through a comprehensive exhibition of their thesis work. These works not only mark the culmination of a year’s worth of artistic practice but they also represent a new generation of Seattle-based artists.
