Afternoon Adventures: 1800s Photography

July 8: 1800s Photography
Did you know that back in the 1800s you had to sit for quite a while to get one picture right? Let us show you historical photos of Des Plaines residents and their “oops” photos. Let’s compare background and wardrobe among other things. Come create a tile relief of a black and white picture and let’s add color to these masterpieces.

The program is designed for children, ages 5-12, with an adult and lasts for two hours. $3 per child for non-members, $2 for members. Call 847-391-5399 for more details.
