BRIDGMAN — Fifteen eighth-grade students at F.C. Reed Middle School in Bridgman are learning darkroom skills this week as they make photograms with local artist Richard Hurd.

The project is thanks to a grant administered through the Bridgman Public Library from the Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Arts Education Fund – the Philadelphia Foundation, said Julie Christian Bender, art teacher at the school.
