Chilren's Museum Pinhole Camera Workshops

Free DIY Camera-Making and Photography Workshop! (R) | 1-4pm
Cameras are incredible tools, and actually pretty easy to make! Join us for an interactive DIY camera-making workshop to build your own pinhole camera using common household tools. We'll start with a private tour of the Museum & Theatre's Camera Obscura, and then jump into making our own cameras with the help of Portland photographer Amy Hagberg. We'll have time to take a photograph with our cameras, and we'll finish with a short trip to the Maine College of Art darkroom to develop our first image! This is a FREE family workshop - parents and siblings are encouraged to join. Recommended for ages 5+. Registration is required. To sign up, call 207-828-1234 ext. 231 or stop by the front desk. Funded by the Rines/Thompson Fund.
