The photography program at the Multnomah Arts Center offers courses in digital and analog photography, including darkroom for teens through adults. From camera basics to advanced techniques, artistic refinements and outdoor photo shoots, students are offered the tools needed to take great photos and become professional artists. A traditional darkroom, equipped with six enlargers and all the necessary equipment for developing black and white prints enhances our photography program.
