The Kids Animal Art Photography Class is set for Tuesday, March 25. Led by Nashville Zoo photographer Amiee Stubbs, this class teaches kids ages 8 – 12 how to take the perfect animal photo. Participants will learn basic camera and photography skills before heading out into the Zoo to practice their skills on our animal collection.
Similar to the Kids Photography Class, the Teen Animal Art Photography Class set for Wednesday, March 26 teaches a slightly older audience of 13 – 16 year olds how to take great animal pictures. Participants will learn the best practices for shooting through glass, fencing and from a distance, and will have the opportunity to practice their skills throughout the Zoo.
A special Backstage Pass Tour of the Elephant Barn is set for Friday, March 28. Participants will go behind-the-scenes of Nashville Zoo’s elephant barn and meet the keepers who care for our herd. Backstage Pass is designed for families ages 5 and up. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Each education program costs an additional fee and requires pre-registration.
