Summer Photography (Focus) Programs
The Corcoran’s Focus on Photojournalism
and Focus on Fine Art Photography
programs allow students interested in photography to develop their skills as well as their portfolios. These residential-only programs carry two undergraduate credits each and offer students ample studio and shooting time, nationally renowned faculty and visiting artists, intensive supervised programs, and activities around the city.
No formal prerequisite is required; students with photo coursework at the high school level as well as those with an interest in starting formal instruction are welcome.
