Summer Teen Workshops

PCNW is pleased to offer summer workshops for teens ages 14-18. Workshop enrollment is limited to 8-12 participants. Early registration is highly recommended as courses fill quickly or insufficient enrollment may cause cancellation.

Note that references to Section 1 and Section 2 of workshop offerings denotes a differentiation in dates only; these are the same courses offered at different times in the summer.

**COVID-19 UPDATE FOR WORKSHOPS**

PCNW will re-open our facilities for education purposes as part of Phase 2 of Washington’s phased re-opening plan and have scheduled summer courses to begin July 6. PCNW staff and faculty are preparing our facilities and training in proper safety protocols to ensure the health of our community as we resume a limited number of in-person classes. We have diligently reviewed and created protocols in alignment with Washington state requirements and guidelines, including reducing class sizes, limiting the number of classes that will take place in the building at one time, designing classroom and lab set-ups for proper distancing, sanitizing shared spaces and equipment after each use, and more. Review our COVID-19 Safety Protocols PDF for information about requirements for staff, faculty, and students.

This summer, we’re shifting most of our week-long teen workshops to a hybrid format incorporating the best of both live online learning sessions with our experienced faculty and in-person photo outings together; darkroom and experimental alternative process workshops will take place in-person with smaller group sizes. You’ll see designations for class format included with each listing below. We will continue to closely monitor announcements and updates regarding COVID-19, the phased re-opening plan, and keep our community informed should we need to adapt our current plans. We appreciate your ongoing understanding, patience, and support as we all navigate the COVID-19 landscape.
