CPAC January

January 5, 2015  

Welcome to the new year! Here at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center we are excited to offer great classes, exhibitions, and lectures year-round. CPAC continues to partner with educational organizations like the Art Students League of Denver to offer workshops and special classes. This spring we are offering two courses at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, which will also be hosting our yearly Pinhole Day celebration. In April, CPAC is bringing a top-notch panel of portfolio reviewers to Month of Photography Denver.

Programs are starting right away! See you soon at CPAC!
