Movie-Making Magic for Teens!


with Felicity Gibbs

Do you have a story to tell? Turn it into a short movie. In this introductory 6 week filmmaking course for teens, we will take your story from inception to final project. Learn writing, editing, and how to pitch. This will be a collaborative and interactive experience that will take you from idea to a short film, using something as simple as your cell phone, or even a fancy camera. This will be a 100% fully ONLINE course with personalized one-on-one "check-in" sessions. The class will meet once a week as a group, online. All members of the class are encouraged to collaborate, assist as desired, and discuss with one another. While the instructor will be leading the course each week, there will also be one-on-one sessions with each participant (online). Access to a smartphone, computer or tablet is required for online participation. *For Ages 13-17 y/o.

with Jennifer Linskey

Calendar Next available session starts Aug 19, 2024 at 9:30 am, runs for 1 week

A loose theme of "Art Around the World" will be incorporated into this weeklong art camp. Not every project will be structured this way, but we’ll touch on the art of Egypt, Greece, Australia, England, Japan, China, and the U.S. It will still be a deep dive into art, but several of the projects will provide an opportunity to look at the incredible artwork of these cultures for inspiration. So when it makes sense, we will. During the week we’ll work from observation, imagination, and consider how dreams might come into our art pieces. No worries if you haven't had art for awhile, come join us for some art making fun! ***Ages 11-14.
