Chemigrams: Experimental Photography without a Darkroom or Camera

Course Code: 23SCEAP000

Dates: February 18, 2023

Meets: Sa from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET

Location: ICP (84 Ludlow Street)

Course Tuition: $335

After a brief look at the physics of gelatin silver emulsion and a review of black-and-white darkroom procedures, students learn how to subvert these classic methods and, by adding new twists, derive color prints from black-and-white materials-the tradition of the chemigram. In this workshop, participants explore how simple maneuvers can give rise to incredibly complex and powerful images. The class is open to anyone who wants to create images, rather than capture them. An artistic inclination is a plus.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.
