    Darkroom Over Digital

    Came across this item in my Facebook newsfeed from the Boston Globe. Good to see so many high school's in my area still teach photography with film and darkrooms!

    The photos included with the article are pretty creative, too. And I'm happy to see that Newtonville Camera is still supplying materials - they were always my go-to store.
    I first learned how to develop film and print in high school. The lab was next to the computer room instead of being near the art rooms and I don't know if it's still there. But it got me started.

    A nice article indeed. Sadly, my high school, as I understand it is removing their newly installed darkroom as the school art room is being turned into a room for children with behavior problems. They seem to get a new art teacher every year, and each one (while I was there) did not seem to see the value of the darkroom at all. I'm glad to see that elsewhere in Mass. that is not quite the case!!

    That's wonderful! I know of only one high school in my area that still teaches wet photography.

    Several teachers in my district still teach darkroom photography although it is getting challenging each year as more and more kids don't want to do the work. One teacher I know has incorporated the cel phone into the darkroom where kids place their phone on top of an enlarger and make a print. Seems to be quite popular.

    I'm a high school literature teacher. All five high schools in the school district I work for offer black and white film/darkroom based photo classes. They also offer digital/photoshop based classes as well, so students can work with both. We've been fortunate that our district, despite being a large urban district, has not suffered the severe budget issues so many public schools have had to deal with in recent years, so we have not cut arts classes. I'm well-known to the students as a professional artist, even though I teach literature, so many of them show me their work and ask advice about it. There are some incredibly talented kids out there.
