Spring 2022

Sound with Zain Alam: March 15 & 17, 4–6 pm
@ Squeaky Wheel, 617 Main St, Buffalo, NY 14203


Our spring session starts off with a special sound-based workshop with Workspace Resident, Zain Alam. Through sampling, remix, and synthesis techniques students will create collages using sounds, photos, and videos. The workshop aims to empower youth not only to look at their favorite media as a model for their own collages but also to question what it means to “borrow” ethically from others.

3D Animation 2: May 14–June 25 (No class May 21 and 28)
Saturdays 11 am–2 pm

@ Villa Maria College, 240 Pine Ridge Rd, Buffalo, NY 14225
Lead Teaching Artist:
Nyles Moore

Are you interested in stepping into the exciting world of 3D animation? These workshops will introduce animation practices, animating/understanding rigs, lighting, camera work, rendering, and texturing. Through a series of projects, students will learn to create and develop their 3D animations with the professional 3D software, Maya.

Can’t do both workshops? No problem! These workshops are designed so participants in both sessions will increase their knowledge while new students can join without previous animation experience.

Digital Arts and Technology Access Program (DATA) is a media arts and technology program designed for neurodivergent individuals ages 13-26. Learn more about DATA.
