This workshop is about play, and creativity. We will develop vision with our cameras using analog film and experiment with traditional black and white prints in the darkroom. Among the techniques we will apply are making images without cameras, the use of plastic cameras, double exposures, solarization, and distressing film. Inspirational examples of many types of film and print techniques will be shown and students will have adequate time to photograph and print in the darkroom. Parents are invited to see the work at the end of the workshop.

Please note: this workshop is for all levels, no prior darkroom experience is needed to take this class.

**In response to COVID-19 we have reduced class sizes to 8 students in order to maintain safe distance practices. This class might be relocated to CPAC and restructured if RMCAD does not re-open campus by this time. We are hoping to hold the workshop in person, but if needed we may transition online or cancel it as it gets closer to the event. Please visit our response page for more information.
