Hey artsednetters------->

glad to be back in the conversation. I have been away for a while. Hope
everyone has been having a nice summer.

Here's my dilemma. I teach K-8 art. A friend of mine has an old enlarger and
photo equiptment that I can't decide whether to buy or not. It is possible to
build a darkroom in my storage room too. I am just not sure if its worth it
for one enlarger. I am afraid I will buy it and it will just sit. Plus I am
unsure of how I would schedule developing etc.

Has anyone here on the elementary level ever done a photography unit with
K-8 before? Can kids develop their own film without an enlarger? I want to do
a photo unit. I feel like this is one of the few media that I have not
covered with my students.

Any input would help... Thanks....Dawn in Tucson
