“I was obsessed with iPhoneography for over a year when I decided to learn the real techniques that many of the popular iPhone apps try to emulate. I bought a Holga, a few rolls of black & white film and enrolled in the Intro to Darkroom Printing class at Glen Echo Park‘s Photoworks Studio. I enjoyed being in a class with passionate photographers. We were able to bounce ideas off of each other, and I think I learned something from each of my classmates.”

“I  had always wanted to have the time to learn to make pottery, but I was not able to start until later in life. Coming to Glen Echo Pottery turned out to be one of the best things I've ever done. Jeff Kirk [Glen Echo Pottery founder and director] is a great teacher, and all the experienced potters here have been welcoming and supportive. I continue to learn from them as well.”
