Glen Echo Park - PhotoWorks

Hey NCC photographers extraordinaire,

For those who are interested in doing traditional photo printing, Glen Echo Park offers several classes that would give you that hands-on darkroom experience. The photography facilities are brand new and the Photo Works program is getting good reviews. They offer B/W and digital photography workshops as well as by-the-hour darkroom time.

If you've never been to Glen Echo I recommend checking out the place sometime. It is just a short bus ride away from the Friendship Heights and Bethesda metro stations.

They've got a juried exhibition of documentary photography on display at the moment, but my favorite part of the place is the funky old amusement park buildings and signage. Well, that and the cute old couples dancing in the "bumper cars" pavillion on weekend nights.

Just a random suggestion from Laura.

Although the Photoworks facilities at Glen Echo are wonderful, I have been, however, disappointed in the courses. The Introduction to Black and White Darkroom I took turned out to be less a course with instruction but a supervised workshop. The instructor was very difficult to contact in case of problems during the "course." I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience.
