This summer we are staying connected by staying apart, together. We continue to ensure the safety of our communities and offer fun and engaging media arts workshops for young creatives. 

We are aware of the digital divide and issues with access to technology that many individuals and families face. Part of our mission has been to bridge these gaps by providing tools in traditional educational environments. To maintain this tradition we have thoughtfully and creatively designed classes that you can accomplish with low access technologies. The projects are created to utilize a smartphone or tablet and internet access to participate. Workshops will make use of free cross-platform apps, or browser-based environments to create amazing digital art and experiences!

Our virtual classes will continue to run like previous summer workshops. Each day consisting of a 3-hour block Monday – Friday. During the first part of the day, students will meet with their instructor and classmates to receive tutorials and challenges for that day. Students will break out to complete those challenges, coming back at the end of class to share what they have made! Each workshop will conclude with students making small class focused portfolios.

 

Please contact our Director of Education, Kevin Kline for any questions.
