ROCKPORT — The Maine Media Workshops and College Annual Open House, featuring free family portraits, is set for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday, June 12, at the school’s 70 Camden St. campus.

Maine Media’s film sound stage is transformed into a high-tech photography studio for the day, and the community is invited for free portrait sessions, refreshments under the dining tent and campus tours. Workshop faculty and staff will be on hand to answer questions about the Maine Media’s educational programs, facilities and special summer events.

Thanks to the support of Bangor Savings Bank and Maine the Magazine, the Open House is free and open to the public.

Now in its 39th year, Maine Media Workshops offers more than 450 workshops for photographers, filmmakers and media artists throughout the year. Programs are available for absolute beginners, serious amateurs, working professionals and high school and college students. A 30-week Professional Certificate program and a three-year low-residency MFA degree program are available through Maine Media College.

Campus tours also are available throughout the summer at 1 p.m. Thursdays. For more information on programs and free community events at Maine Media, call 236-8581, email info@theworkshops.com, or visit the http://www.mainemedia.edu.
