Intro to Photography

Tuesday, Jan 4 - Friday, Jan 7
10:00 am - 11:00/15 am MST

School has been postponed for a week in many provinces.  To help with activities during the week, we've added in a photography class during school hours to keep kids engaged!

A great introduction to photography for 8 - 12 year olds.  We'll talk about seeking new perspectives for our subjects, play with different composition techniques and work on storytelling ideas.  There will be loads of examples to learn from, lots of photo-taking during class, challenges to inject even more fun into class and photo ideas to work on after class.  We'll also share and discuss the photos kids take in the next class.

This class can be taken with a phone or a camera.
