Workshops & Classes

Founded in 1952 by a group of artists, writers, and curators, Aperture has consistently fostered an environment of creativity and collaboration. Aperture workshops bring students, professionals, and amateurs together with leading photographers working in a variety of fields and genres for intensive educational experiences. Our classes focus on topics related to photobook design and history, current photographic practice, and the history of the medium.
