August 19@10:00 AM - 3:00 PM$35
Join us for an all day, all-ages, fun and educational photo activity day! Youth 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult (but don’t worry, this is just as interesting for grown-ups!). We will all build a room-sized camera obscura, make our own pinhole cameras, and create lumen prints and cyanotypes outside. Everyone will leave with artwork, a lens-less camera, and a new appreciation for light and optics.
with Mike Fletcher & Julia Raite
