A mentored program of workshops, Master Classes, field and lab work
Study with a different professional photographer each week!
Spend six, eight or 12 weeks in Rockport this summer, attending Master Classes and workshops while working one-on-one with a mentor from our resident faculty.
Summer Intensives are available in the following areas:
- Digital Workflow
- Fine Art Digital Printmaking
- Personal Vision
- Traditional B&W Printmaking
- Documentary & Photojournalism
- Nature, Landscape, & Travel Photography
The Summer Intensive program offers the chance to design a sequence of workshops and master-level classes in a specified area of interest. Develop your portfolio in our specialized alternative process lab, digital printing labs and commercial studio space; while engaging with up to two hundred artists each week, and working with five or eight premiere faculty members of your choice. Be paired with a mentor from our resident faculty who will assist your journey.
Design this intensive to fit your specific needs—it is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to learn more about their artistic vision.
Each six–week intensive consists of four workshop weeks, with an additional two weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty at Maine Media.
Each eight-week intensive consists of five workshop weeks, with an additional three weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty at Maine Media. It is recommended that the first week and last week of the intensive be reserved for mentored weeks.
Each 12-week intensive consists of eight workshop weeks, with an additional four weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a member of the resident faculty at Maine Media. It is recommended that the first week and last week of the intensive be reserved for mentored weeks.
