1977 the Center has presented
the Woodstock Photography Workshops,
and education series where national and international photographers serve as teachers. Workshop students
come from all over the USA as well as from other countries to study with
inspiring working photographers who have
the skill and desire to share their experiences with a peer group. The Workshops are a unique opportunity
to meet world-renowned professionals in an informal and nourishing environment.
Benefits: Interns participate for free in Workshop and Lecture Series; have the opportunity to share their portfolio with the visiting artists; gain access to a range of teaching styles, philosophies of art, a large range of techniques; are exposed to a diversity of ways to approach the medium; take part in classes with a wide range of topics. A fully equipped professional digital imaging lab and a black-and-white darkroom, equipment and accessories, and use of our library is available free of charge to Interns. Interns learn strategies in teaching, arts administration, and professional image making. The Intern experience is unlike traditional "classroom" education. In a matter of months, Interns have the opportunity to meet an average of fifteen different guest teachers and hundreds of students. An entire range of topics is presented in a relatively short span. CPW's Education Coordinator serves as a mentor in how to facilitate Workshops.
Responsibilities: Meeting each visiting guest artist upon arrival in Woodstock, general hospitality for guest, setting up supplies and facility for each specific event, and orienting students, documenting the classes with photographs and basic video, presentation of "critique" sheets for Workshop registrants, clean up of facility, and production of weekly press and publicity for the parallel Photography Lecture Series.
