Mentorship and Support
At the Philipson Foundation, we believe that teaching people to care for public lands, to appreciate them and their beauty, is the best way to teach people to love, appreciate, and protect our local resources and our climate. Our mentorship and support services aim to empower artists and community members to connect with the environment and promote environmental stewardship through their creative expressions.
Our Mentorship and Support Services
We provide workshops, training sessions, and access to resources such as grant writing guides, legal templates, and marketing materials. Our goal is to provide support and mentorship to individuals who are passionate about using art as a tool for environmental advocacy and to encourage more people to get involved in the protection of our public lands.
Join our monthly photography class, free of charge, and participate in discussions about photography as an art form and its process. Led by professional photographers, these classes cover a variety of topics related to landscape photography, wildlife and plant life photography, editing and post-processing skills, and how to use photography as a tool for environmental advocacy. Our classes are open to anyone who is interested in photography, regardless of experience level, and are a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who share your passion for nature and the environment.
Please note that our photography classes are focused on discussions about photography as an art form and its process. While we appreciate the role that technology can play in photography, our classes do not cover technical aspects of photography, such as camera equipment and settings.
By participating in our photography classes, you will not only learn new skills and techniques, but also gain a deeper appreciation for our public lands and become a part of a community of artists and environmental advocates who are working to promote positive change.
