Field Trips to CEPA

Field Trips to CEPA - Arts Education - CEPA Gallery - Buffalo NY

CEPA provides free tours of our galleries for school and community groups. If you can stay for awhile, take one or all of our workshops for a small fee.

Students visiting CEPA will see a variety of photographic art. Often the images are challenging in a way that stretches the mind.

One of our goals in introducing students to looking at photography, is to promote the concept of interpretation. Everyone has their own unique reaction to and interpretation of a work of art. This experience opens minds and leads to an understanding and acceptance of different points of view.

Field Trips with Photography Workshops

Bring your students to see our exhibits and spend a half or whole day with us experimenting with light!

Together, we can put together a field trip that suits your students and your budget. Large groups (20+) can be divided up and rotated through the different workshops shown below. (The number of students impacts the price.)
