The Westmoreland Historical Society is proud to announce a student photography workshop presented by the Westmoreland Photographers Society.

This two-day workshop will provide high school students with an in-depth, hands-on learning experience focused on creating, processing, and exhibiting photographs. Led by the president of the Westmoreland Photographers Society, this program will give student learners the opportunity to take their skills to the next level.

The first day of the workshop will include a presentation on topics including camera equipment, exposure, composition, and post-processing, along with a guided photo outing on the grounds of Historic Hanna’s Town. Students will explore buildings representing 250 years of history, gardens of native plants, and a forested trail. The second day will allow students to print and exhibit their best photograph at the Westmoreland History Education Center.

Saturday, August 24, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. & Sunday, August 25, 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

This program corresponds with the Westmoreland History Education Center’s inaugural exhibit, Scenes of Westmoreland: Visions of Light, a collaborative photography exhibit of Westmoreland County's historic, cultural, and natural resources.

This workshop is generously supported by the Westmoreland County Local Arts Program made possible by the Westmoreland County Commissioners. Thanks to their support, this program is free.

Registration is required and space is limited. Please call the Historical Society’s Education Coordinator at 724-836-1800 x212 to register.
