KU Photography program hosting free workshop for high school students

The Photography program at the University of Kansas School of Architecture & Design is hosting a free one-day photography workshop for high school students on KU’s campus in Lawrence. Students have the option of attending the workshop on either Saturday, Oct. 29, or Sunday, Oct. 30. Both workshop sessions will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the KU Photography program’s facilities in Chalmers Hall, 1464 Jayhawk Blvd., Lawrence, KS 66045. 

This immersive workshop is designed for high school students of all skill levels. Both students who are planning to pursue careers in photography/video and those who are considering possible educational and career pathways are encouraged to attend.  

Guided by KU instructors, participants will learn advanced portraiture and compositional techniques using large format cameras in KU’s lighting studio. Through hands-on instruction, students will gain experience developing film and creating a contact print in the photography laboratory darkroom.  

Whether a student is looking to hone their college application portfolio or just interested in creative exploration, this workshop will be an illuminating and fun experience. 

Due to the hands-on nature of the workshop, space is limited. Learn more and reserve a spot: Sign up for Fall 2022 High School Photography Workshop
