Workshops at the Center are

Designed to offer

For practitioners as well as casual enthusiasts, workshops introduce special topics through a condensed format, and are often taught by special guests and visiting artists. PCNW offers 5-hour crash courses through 4-week workshops, with many options in between, catering to a range of interests and availability.

Individuals looking for full length foundation courses in photography, digital imaging or studio practice should consider a ten-week course from our quarterly schedule of accredited classes.
