They may not have years of experience, or traveled the world capturing photographs of exotic animals and foreign cultures, but students from the WOW photography club, sure show interest. The more than two dozen second through fifth grade students who participated in the after school program run by Weston Youth Services have their work displayed in the Library Community Room.
The art includes photographs of flowers by Ben Rosenburg, hamsters on a chess board by Maia Fuchs, ripples in a pond by Failenn Aselta and pine trees covered in snow by Kelvin Green. Many of the photographers displayed multiple photographs each.
In the one-hour classes run by Wilma Donaldson and Charlene Monn, the children learned about film, photography, famous artists and how to use cameras. They were allowed to take their cameras home with them or on vacation to capture their own color or black and white images
Weston Youth Services provides a variety of before and after school programs during the year. The courses are offered in the fall, winter and spring.
