"BKC is a haven for art, craft and photography lovers, and they offer tons of fantastic classes. The space we worked in was so fresh and inspiring. Our BKC instructors, Caitlin and Caroline, were so knowledgeable, friendly, and hands on..."
"You would be hard pressed to find a superior spot to be schooled in the fundamentals that you will need to know, at this price. I have taken workshops at several other local outfits, and the quality of the education here is *unmistakably* better. Excellent location in the heart of DUMBO near Brooklyn Bridge Park, knowledgeable and charismatic instructors who are well regarded professionals in the field, very cool studio space that classes are taught in, easy to use web registration, fun newsletter/events, and extremely accommodating customer service when you need a little extra help..."
"BKC is fantastic! For the first time (even though I've tried before) I feel like I know enough of the fundamentals to be able to take good photos or at least to know why the ones I'm taking aren't good. Charles and Justin are awesome, super helpful, and clearly very passionate about teaching. I just regret not finding this place sooner. What's even more awesome is that I don't need to stop at the basics class as they offer tons of other classes they offer. Thank you BKC!"
We must admit to being a little heartbroken to hear the news that 3rd Ward had suddenly closed down. As a staple in the Brooklyn creative scene, and an inspiring story of do-it-yourselfism, 3rd Ward has provided a ton of great classes and facilities for all kinds of folks, and we're sad to see such a popular local institution disappear.
In addition, we feel for all the members of 3rd Ward who will not be able to make use of their remaining membership access. So as a growing destination for photo, video and digital production in Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood, we'd like to try to rectify the situation a bit.
While we can't help get any money back, we can offer this: Send us a picture of your 3rd Ward membership card and we'll issue you a discount code for 25% off any of our classes, which can be used as many times as you'd like over the next 6 months. Please make sure your name is visible in the photo and e-mail them to email@example.com.
Hey, it's the least we can do to keep creative education blossoming in Brooklyn.
Welp! Another summer is in the books, and we're not sad at all. But honestly, some of our best "thinky" moments come flooding in around this time, when the air cools and the muggy tropical heat releases the city from its sloth-like grip. It's easier to get things done when you're not drenched in sweat.
But that's not the only reason we feel a bit sharper in the month of September. Let's face it: years of calendar indoctrination at the hands of the U.S. school system have created a back-to-school mindset, even if you're over a decade removed from K-12 learning as we are. That snap of autumn somehow just turbocharges our brain and old habits die hard. So let's make the most of it!
It's like the man says... Summer ain't over yet, but let's also commemorate this final gesture of warmth with a one-week only SUMMER'S NOT DEAD SALE so you can all get your productive lives back in order for the clear-headed splendor that is September in New York.
We're offering a big discount across the board -- That's right, 30% off any class* (discounts already applied!)
