First, kids can participate in a full-day class that will feature photography basics, fun and some pizza for lunch. Cost is just 60 bucks.
Then, later that day, teens and young adults can hang out for the evening session which is a “boot camp” for aspiring shutterbugs.More on both classes can be found via Maris’ blog.
