"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!"
"I just took the "The Hand-made Book" class with Caitlin Wheeler - It was awesome! Caitlin is a well versed, informative, fun and sweet instructor. We received thorough direction accompanied by a detailed instruction manual. Within the class we made 3 different books that we were able to take away with us... I'M SO GLAD I WENT!
“Caroline and Caitlin (our fearless leaders) totally knew their stuff and guided us through a few hours of making our very own prints. It was awesome to have all of the materials at our disposal, and even better to have fun people in the class during the process.”
So we're keeping close tabs on the snow situation... the Nor'easter approaches and is rumored to bring up to a foot of snow over the next couple days.
Here's the plan:
Five Dollar Fridays: Color
Currently scheduled to run. If the snow situation gets out of hand and trains start shutting down, we'll send out calls and e-mails by 2:00 pm to everyone who has signed up to cancel the classes. All $5 registrations can be credited towards any future Five Dollar Friday session or class.
Digital Photo II Field Guide V: The Flash Digital Photo I
By Friday night we should have an idea of whether travel will be hampered by this snowstorm. We'd like to keep the classes going, but if it's going to be tough to get here, we'll send all registered students an e-mail with rescheduled dates and arrangements.
If you're signed up for a class and having trouble getting around due to transportation problems, let us know!
We found someone's BKC notebook left behind after one of our Field Guide classes recently, and we'd love to get it back to its rightful owner. Do you recognize this handwriting as your own? If so, we commend your note-taking prowess!
Email us with your address and we'll mail it to you...
