Hero Treatment


Photography is both art and science. As an art form, it has advanced through technology, while remaining a pure and organic reflection of personal artistic vision. Our photography courses offer students the opportunity to explore both the most fundamental and most advanced elements of photography, using simple equipment, uncommon techniques, and complex digital programming.

Photography students learn and create in our classrooms, darkroom, and digital laboratories. They may also exhibit their work in the Mark W. Potter Gallery, and work with professional artists who come to Taft through our Rockwell Visiting Artist program.
