Animal Photography for Kids @ Marin Humane
May 9 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join us for a fun photography workshop! Our theme will be “A Day in the Life at Marin Humane” as we photograph daily activities and shelter animals at our Novato campus. Prior camera experience is not required. Instruction and handouts on basic photography principles will be provided and the main focus of the workshop will be on techniques to capture great photos.

What to bring:
• Digital camera (fully charged). If at all possible, please bring a dedicated digital camera.
• Memory Card (empty)
• Extra batteries

At the conclusion of the workshop each student will leave their digital storage card with the
instructor. Photos will be uploaded to a private gallery for viewing and the card will be returned by mail. Each student will receive a set of five original greeting cards featuring their favorite photos. A limited number of digital cameras are available for use during the class for students who do not have access to one.

The class will be taught by Kathie Meier, longtime Marin resident, Marin Humane volunteer, and avid photographer.

Recommended for children ages 10 – 14.
