Part of CoPA's mission is to educate people about the value of photogragraphy as an art. So, of course, we value our relationships with schools and educators.
In the last several years CoPA has worked with many colleges in southeastern Wisconsin. Our portfolio reviews, which include top names in the local photographic art world as reviewers, have been held at Cardinal Stritch University, Alverno College, and Carroll University. We've had special speaking events at Marquette University, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Carroll University, and our Pin-up Show has been held at Mount Mary College for the last three years.
If you are an educator, feel free to come and visit a CoPA event or meeting. We would love it if you encouraged your students to participate in CoPA, which has a special student membership rate. If you want to be alerted to student events, and CoPA's annual Artist Incentive Award just for students, contact CoPA President Kelly Crandall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
