Polly Hill Arboretum will host a youth nature photography after-school program for students in grades 4 to 7, six Tuesdays in May and June. The classes will provide hands-on opportunities to connect to the local landscape, facilitate stewardship and advocacy, and develop a way of seeing that encourages a long lasting enjoyment of the simple beauty found in nature. Students will need to bring their own standalone digital camera (rather than phone camera), and will be introduced to the digital darkroom, as well as professional printing.
This class will be led by instructor Melisande (Melissa) Blythe Knowles. She is a teaching artist, photographer, and exhibits curator dedicated to improving the welfare of children, the elderly and vulnerable communities.
Tuesday, May 7 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm
