Darkroom Photography (Ages 9-11)

Learn the fundamentals of black and white photography. We'll take photo field trips and use the darkroom to print our photographs. Ages 9-11 will use pinhole cameras and learn to create photograms. For ages 12-14, lessons include camera operation, composition, lighting, subject matter, and other principles. 12 to 14-year-old students may bring their own manual, 35mm camera to class, or borrow one of ours. Students must also have permission to go on walking field trips around the neighborhood.

Special Notes

  • This class takes walks around the neighborhood, so dress appropriately. Students may bring their own 35mm camera film camera, or borrow one of ours.

    This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website:
