Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day
Anyone, anywhere in the world, who makes a pinhole photograph on the last Sunday in April, can scan it and upload it to this website where it will become part of the annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day celebration's online gallery.
The last Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day was celebrated around the planet on April 25, 2010. Visit the gallery to view the pinhole photographs taken on that day from participants around the world!

Marian Roth : Pinhole Shack
I was fortunate to have learned the pinhole process from this woman.
This is one of my favorite series of photos by Marian. It has moved to several locations on the internet. With a search, I hope you can find the site.

- Constitution and By-laws Provincetown Art Association and Museum, 1921
Since the 1920s the Provincetown Art Association and Museum has participated in the Outer Cape tradition of offering instruction and studio art classes to visitors and members of our community. In 1982 PAAM educational mission was furthered when the Museum School at PAAM was officially founded, with an onsite studio classroom. Modeled after the Art Students League of New York, the Museum School has provided students of all levels the opportunity to work with local, professional artists in a variety of settings and media, working en plein air and in the traditional, studio classroom environment.
The school has evolved over the past 21 years into a year-round program, featuring two months of summer classes and an 8-week studio intensive, as well as fall and winter workshops and multi-week classes.
To deepen participation in our artistic community, students are invited to become members of PAAM. As PAAM continues its commitment to support and represent contemporary artists, each new artist/member joins a long roster of distinguished American artists who have studied, taught, and exhibited at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum over the last century.
