Who we are

BKC is a photo, video and creative education center located in the heart of Dumbo, Brooklyn.  Our basic philosophy is simple: cut the crap.  We’re founded upon the idea of learning by doing, whether it's hands-on classes in studio lighting, a workshop on shooting HD Video for Youtube, unleashing the potential of Lightroom or just how to use your DSLR, our smart and simple approach and awesome teachers will help you learn something new, build on your creativity, and expand your goals.  

The BKC staff of experienced educators, artists, curators and creative professionals is totally dedicated to providing you with smart, no-nonsense instruction and creating an environment for everyday New Yorkers to learn a skill, confidently progress in your practice, or unearth a hidden talent.   We keep classes at a price you can afford, and offer plenty of nights and weekend sessions for working folks.  

We're offering new classes all the time.  If you would like to be kept up to date on upcoming classes, big discounts, art openings, Youtube videos we're obsessed with, and general items of interest, sign up on the mailing list for our weekly newsletter.

BKC works in collaboration with the Rabbithole gallery to create a multifaceted underground art space, complete with artists-in-residence, photo studio rentals, monthly exhibitions and a full events calendar.   Through this partnership, and by merging exhibition with education, we aim to expand the possibilities of artists and their creative efforts.

Located on the waterfront of the Dumbo art district in Brooklyn, Rabbithole is a contemporary art and community space.  Since 2006, Rabbithole has shown works by hundreds of emerging and mid-career artists, producing over 50 group and solo shows as a participant gallery in Dumbo's First Thursday series of art walks.  The space operates as a project room, providing artists a forum for showing new works and works-in-progress, and presenting events, film screenings, readings and parties.
