Explore the importance of flowers and plants in your world! This class conducts experiments in how water moves through plants, flower dissection, leaf chromatography, and why butterflies and bees are good for your garden. Feel free to bring your own leaf sampels- but leave the bees at home! This class is for kids 7-9 years of age.
Have you considered taking your camera off the automatic setting and actually creating a photo? Using shutter speed, aperature, depth of field and depth of focus, you can MAKE a photo rather than taking whatever the camera wants to give you. Beginners will learn the basis of “Getting Off Automatic” and mid-level students will learn techniques they never knew existed. There is something for everyone as each student will be given individual attention. The class will also introduce the business component of photography. You must have a camera capable of being taken off automatic for this class. A list of additional required supplies is available from the Rifle Campus front desk. Class days are Fri. & Mon., 6p – 8:30p and Sat. & Sun., 9:30a – 8:30p.
