New Children’s Museum tries helping families with affordable fun

Friends With Class has teamed with the New Children’s Musem to take its class “Little Snaps: Photography With Your Toddler” into the setting of the new museum.

Created by a mom, the class combines the opportunity for parents and caretakers to learn about the fine art of photography while with their toddlers and introducing them to this medium. Originally taught in local parks, the class has now moved into the museum and moved down in price to make it as affordable as possible for families coming out of a very tough economic year.

“The class began with friends and other moms in my playgroup as we were seeking something interesting that we could learn without having to leave our little ones behind. The museum’s requirement that any family be able to participate for under $20 was a challenge but together we found a way to make it work,” Gabriela Dow, founder of Friends With Class, said.

The “Little Snaps” class begins Jan. 10 at the New Children’s Museum in downtown San Diego at 10:15 a.m. Cost for the six-week session is $100 for parents and their toddler (under age 5), or the drop-in rate is $18. Class is taught by expert photographer Amanda Dahlgren, who is also a mom.

Class information and registration is available at www.thinkplaycreate.org.
