Through the Learning Center, HCP offers over 300 workshops to the general public each year. HCP's Educational Calendar is published quarterly and presents workshops for both film and digital photographers of all levels. Photographers can choose topics they are interested in or follow a curriculum guide to learn the basics of photography. Workshops and courses are held on-site at HCP in the critique room and digital darkroom as well as off-site in the field, at artist studios, or at the facility of one of our partner organizations.
HCP members receive a discount to all classes & workshops. Members also enjoy the benefit of early registration each quarter.
