In 2017, Youth Speak Collective's Digital Arts Program began a partnership with CalArts' Community Arts Partnership Program to provide a computer-based animation class to the North East San Fernando Valley. The class meets on Saturdays, and is open to young people works with youth from the community. The class covers drawing, painting, animation and media arts. Students learn drawing and painting techniques, and how to draw from a model, animate, put together an art portfolio and create artwork on computers through the use of the Adobe Creative Cloud and Dragonframe.
