Art has expanded his most popular workshop, the abstract series, to historic Port Townsend, Washington! He is offering new locations, portfolio reviews, and a critique every day. This workshop is limited to a maximum of five participants to both ensure safety as well as more one-on-one attention.

This location has so much to offer: great opportunities for abstract photography, excellent restaurants for sampling delicious Northwest cuisine, historic architecture, all surrounded by intense natural beauty.

This special workshop is begins with a Welcome Gathering at Bishop Hotel in Port Townsend.  The following three days will be a combination of intensive field sessions and lectures based on Art’s comprehensive photography curriculum that he has been honing for years.  Art’s goal is work closely with each participant to really transform and refine their skills.  An image can have the power to stimulate the imagination and the intellect while also telling a story that awakens the senses.  Art’s challenge is to explore the nature of creativity itself and discover ways to bring its power to your images.
To keep our instructors and clients safe and healthy as well as streamlining the process of acquiring destination venues and accommodations, we are asking that all workshop participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


Led by Art Wolfe
