A picture is worth a thousand words! This class (Updated and improved for 2023) will empower students to begin to capture images that express themselves in relation to the world around them. Students will be introduced to technical and aesthetic aspects of photography, providing them with the foundation for life-long enjoyment & expression.
This class is designed for 9- to 14-year-olds and will take place on 2 consecutive Saturdays from 9:00-11:30 each Saturday (April 15 & 22nd).
Bonus: During class each student will choose a digital camera of their choice to own which will keep them shooting photos even after the class ends. Cameras are name brand models updated for this class that have been gifted through the kindness of others.
Special Note: Adults are invited to share in the fun of learning a new skill with a younger person, and will learn tips on how to encourage their kids to further develop this newly acquired skill. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for the additional person, just complete the registration for 1 adult and note the name and age of student photographer in the comment section of the registration.
