Retired school teacher Mrs. Magelssen will teach a beginning photography class for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 11, at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
This beginning photography class will encourage children to discover the basics of composing good photographs through hands-on experience. Camera equipment will be provided. Students will identify pictures that are pleasing to the eye, take pictures of flowers and wildlife at the nature center.
This class, organized by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), is a great way for children to explore photography and nature.
Mrs. Magelssen taught 1st & 2nd grade for 14 years before retiring in 2014. After retiring she took up birding and discovered that the best way to identify a bird was through a photo. So she combined the two hobbies – birding & photography. She misses teaching elementary students.
Class costs $20 for non-members and $16 for PEEC members. Camera equipment is provided. There are only four spaces remaining in this class, so please sign up soon to reserve a spot. This class will take place at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road.
