aMuse’um offers photography course for kids

Columbia Children’s Museum is partnering with Molly Wantland of Simply M Photography to present an eight-week course on photography. The Photography 101 class is targeted toward children ages 8-10, giving them the skills to enhance their creative hobby by learning the technical skills that comprise successful images.

Students will learn the basics of digital photography, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, composition and posing. At the end of the course, aMuse’um will hold an exhibit with the students’ photographs on display in the museum for public viewing.

The Photography 101 course is made possible in part by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission. The course will be held from 3:45-4:45 p.m. on Mondays beginning March 17. The cost for the eight-week experience is $85. Students should have access to a digital camera and an iPhone or smart phone camera.

Columbia Children’s Museum is a nonprofit organization located at 123 W. 7th St. Open play hours are from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday-Saturday, with special educational classes and events after school and on weekends.
