While we at Cleveland Print Room continue readying our new facility for future exhibitions, classes, and other events, we have ramped up our photography and darkroom offerings at Cleveland State University and Tri-C.

The spacious, well-appointed darkroom at CSU’s Middough Building (1901 East 13th Street) is the site of our regular open darkroom hours, as well as the spring sessions of our B&W Darkroom Basicsclasses, led by photographer Hadley K Conner. These classes cover development, proofing, and printing of black and white film. The complete experience will take place over two Saturdays from noon to 4. The first session covers loading, developing, and proofing film, with an intro to printing. The second sessions offer an afternoon of printing with instructor assistance.

In partnership with Tri-C, we are offering an eight-week course in digital street photography for youth ages fifteen to eighteen. Students will learn to be present and engaged in the world around them through street photography. Practicing street photographers will lead students throughout different parts of Cleveland to teach them how to engage with their surroundings. Students will become more comfortable interacting with people, sharpen their eyes, and learn to be more curious and intentional about what they see and how they see it.
