Get creative in this hands-on workshop devoted to the art (and magic) of the lensless camera! Participants will learn the history of the camera obscura and the pinhole camera through discussion and examples. Then, under the guidance of the instructor, students will design and construct their own simple pinhole cameras. The class will experiment by shooting with both paper negatives as well as film and processing the images in a darkroom. By the end of this 2-week class, participants will leave with a pinhole and photographs made by the camera!

*ALL necessary materials will be provided*
