This Sunday (Sept.25), open lab hours will begin at 12:30pm instead of the typical 11am. It will conclude at 3pm as normal.
The Trip to Chicago is scheduled for Thursday, November 10. The price is $30 per person. We are taking reservations now. There will be drop off points at the Field Museum, the National Museum of Mexican Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
At the Field Museum, you can see China's First Emperor and His Terracotta Warriors . You can read more about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the ancient Chinese sculptures here.
At the National Museum of Mexican Art, you will find a fantastic Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) exhibition. Admission to the NMMA is free.
More about the Trip to Chicago
The trip to Chicago is an all-day adventure. The bus leaves Building 3 at 8am and arrives back at about 11:30pm. Thursday, November 10 was specifically chosen for a couple of reasons. First, Thursday evenings are free at the Art Institute and it’s open until 8pm. The second reason we selected this date is because the next day is a holiday at BHC – which means some well-earned rest after a full day for students. So clear your calendar and reserve your spot!

Reservations for bus seats go through Melissa. The price is $30 per seat and can be paid by cash or check written out to “Black Hawk College”. Payment is due at time of reservation.

School is back in session in the Black Hawk College Art Department! Check this website often or subscribe to the RSS Feed to get updates on class activities, community art events, and other exciting "artsy" stuff. (Pictured: Mr. Petersen's Digital Photography Class)
There are still spaces available in Darkroom Photography (ART 231). This course is only offered in the fall, so you will have to wait for Fall 2017 for another opportunity. Darkroom Photography is a prerequisite for The Photographic Series (ART 232), so if you want to take ART 232 in the Spring, you must complete ART 231 this semester. You do not have to purchase a film camera, there are plenty available for loan.
Learn how photographs were created before digital technology existed! Topics include shooting and developing film, make photographic prints in the darkroom, and image manipulation.
