More communities should do this!

Ventura, California, is running free darkroom demonstrations geared towards kids. "Kids in the Darkroom - Photography the Old-Fashioned Way." They're going to take a photo with a large-format camera, develop the film, and make a big print. The hope is that kids will see the magic of a print appearing in the Dektol and be changed for life.

Sounds like a good idea. Any photographers want to open their darkrooms to groups of kids and give a demonstration? You never know what you might start!

Here's the article in the Ventura County Star.
