ONSITE: Darkroom Photography (Ages 12-14)
Using 35mm cameras, learn the fundamentals of black and white photography. Take field trips and use the darkroom to print your own photographs. Lessons include camera operation, composition, lighting, subject matter and other principles. If time allows, we may also experiment with pinhole photography by making our own cameras out of recycled materials. Bring your own manual, 35mm camera to class or borrow one of ours.
- This is an On-site course. Students must follow social distancing protocols and wear masks at all times. For more info visit visarts.org.
