Hands on History for Kids - Photography of the Past

Wednesday, January 8, 1-3pm & Sunday, January 12, 1-3pm

The invention of photography in the 1800s changed the world, allowing us to capture historic moments and reshape the way we see ourselves and the world around us. We’re celebrating this amazing history this month by talking about early cameras, photographic firsts, and taking some photos of our own!

Geared toward children ages 5-12.
