This introductory class is designed for high school students, who wish to learn how to shoot, process and print film in our darkroom. It’s a fun class as we keep the classes small so you can really have time to learn and experiment within this class. Also, students can practice their new skills at our facility, while the course is in session. This course fills quickly. Instructor will email materials list prior to first class. Please note: This class can be taken in lieu of the Photo Center Orientation.
Photo Center Orientation is not required for this class, but it is required if student wishes to come to the Photo Center outside the workshop to develop film on their own and/or print their own photos in the Darkroom.
