FMoPA Institute

A variety of classes taught by highly validated professionals, explore the technical aspects of photography, the creative potential residing in everyone, and the applications towards creative practice.  All the workshops can be taken as single units of particular interest, or as a full concentration resulting in certificates of completion.

We look forward to a most productive and fruitful year with over 30 workshops that cover most aspects of photography and promote photography education.
