A professional photographer will teach your kid to shoot fantastic photos and put on their own show at a gallery in the Oak Park Arts District.
Students learn the basics of setting up a great shot, how to make the most of lighting, and how to tell a story with their pictures. They will curate their own show and learn how to mount and create a photography exhibit. Friends and family are invited to attend their ‘opening’ at the conclusion of the last class.

Beginning life as the Harrison Street Business Alliance in 1993, the rebranded Oak Park Arts District captured the new reality of a growing artistic community on Harrison. Encompassing the half mile of Harrison Street from Austin Boulevard west to Elmwood, the area is home to a thriving artistic community as well as a diverse variety of small enterprises. In addition to galleries and workshops focusing on the visual and performing arts, visitors can find businesses offering personal care services, health care and wellness, clothing and jewelry, restaurants and cafés, pet services, social services, and building services.
