Explorations in the Darkroom: Photograms

Fleisher’s JumpstART Workshops are single-session workshops that provide an introduction to our rich offerings and specialized studios. Led by our renowned teaching artists, the workshops are a welcoming and fun way to engage with art and share the experience with family and friends. You will walk away with a new understanding of a creative medium and an original artwork!

Get seduced by the magic of black and white darkroom photography! You’ll explore the historic photographic technique of the photogram, in which placing objects on the light-sensitive paper you can create rich and elaborate images. You’ll learn developing techniques and will walk away with several 8×10″ photograms of your very own!

Bring several small objects that you can work into a composition and have an interesting contour. Translucent fabric or papers with interesting patterns, like lace or mesh, also work well with the process. All other supplies are included.
