Program Structure
Last Fotos Project holds workshops year-round during the fall, spring, and summer. Workshops are two hours long and meet once per week. Las Fotos Project is located in Lincoln Heights, but we serve communities throughout Los Angeles including Boyle Heights, Koreatown, East Los Angeles, Huntington Park, MacArthur Park, South Central Los Angeles, and several satellite locations abroad.

Trainings are usually held in the fall and spring. Applications are reviewed in the weeks prior to trainings and qualified applicants are invited to attend. If you are applying at any other time, you will receive a confirmation that your materials were received. Further communications will follow, closer to training season. We appreciate your patience. Thank you very much for your interest in Las Fotos Project. Click here to apply.
