Houston Center for Photography started out small, when it opened in 1981, and has today become a major fine art organisation that focuses on photography. It boasts of many permanent as well as rotating exhibitions which include photographs on various subjects, by different artists, and also aims to educate visitors about the art via publications, educational programs and workshops.
In fact, it offers to people of all ages, hundreds of classes and workshops on the art. The Learning Center offers the chance to select an area of interest with respect to film as well as photography, and the classes often include lectures and demonstrations by industry experts. These classes are held at the Center’s critique room, digital darkroom, off-site, artists studios and at other partner organization facilities.
