Digital Arts

The Digital Media program teaches youth how to film, direct and edit short films. The program gives at risk youth a creative outlet to express themselves and highlight issues they find important in their communities and schools.

The Digital Arts program works with youth from the community to create film based projects as well as learning the systems and techniques that are involved. The program includes hands-on project based learning, as well as in-class theory and software use of programs. The youth from the program create short documentaries about issues that are important to them and currently the youth in this program are creating a documentary about the struggles of youth in Pacoima.
