Schlick To Host Photography Crash Course At Audubon

Those who still have a lot to learn about how to use their point-and-shoot or SLR camera may be interested in the Photography Crash Course at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary on Saturday, Feb. 8.

From 1:30-4 p.m., through a series of demonstrations and exercises, those participating will learn the uses of the basic settings on their camera, as well as a strategy for using them effectively.

The course is intended for people who want to get more out of their camera. Because everyone’s camera is different, the workshop approach will have participants interacting with other people who have similar cameras to learn how the basic principles of photography are implemented on their camera.

Instructor Jennifer Schlick, Audubon’s program director, has been pursuing photography since 2007. Her photos have been exhibited in local galleries and can be seen at her nature blog,

Participants are asked to bring their point-and-shoot or SLR camera and its instruction manual to class and to dress for the weather, as some of the exercises will be outdoors.

Class size is limited to 20. The fee is $45 or $35 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are required by Monday, Feb. 3, by calling 569-2345, emailing or use the online form by clicking through the Program Listing at

Audubon education programs are made possible in part through funding from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, the Holmberg Foundation, the Hultquist Foundation and the Johnson Foundation.

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. For more information, call 569-2345 or visit
