This workshop is aimed at kids aged 7 – 11 years, where they will learn how to use their cameras to take fun, creative images. Through a series of hands-on practical games and projects, they will learn the basic functions of a camera and how to produce images they will be proud of. It also means that YOU might feature in a few more of your holiday snaps!
The course runs over 3 days (3 hours per day) with the final day being an interactive outing to the zoo. The course fee includes the entrance fee to the Zoo, but it is recommended that you give your child a bit of tuck money for snacks and drinks, as they’ll be running around a bit.
