Brass Camera Lens Owned by Julia Margaret Cameron at the Museum of Photographic Arts
The Museum of Photographic Arts features educational programs for all age levels, including youth, adults, and senior citizens. MOPA has held a juried exhibition featuring photographs by young people in the community every year since 2006. Weekly camps for grade schoolers take place during the summer months in which children have the option to learn about photography, animation, or special effects.
Adults and seniors can take advantage of art talks and photography courses. The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theater features film festivals and other special screening events featuring pieces of cinema that are compelling and unique. In partnership with the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, MOPA presents Memories at the Museum, a program of special tours for people with dementia and an accompanying family member that happens quarterly.
For those seeking more information or conducting independent research, the Edmund L. and Nancy K. Dubois Library features an extensive collection of educational items related to photography. In addition to books, these include exhibition catalogs, magazines, monographs, and encyclopedias. If you need assistance, staff members are available to help whenever the library is open.
