A place where teens can explore their interests in programming, film-making, music production and design. Our space will have professional recording, mixing, editing, and video equipment, green screen, vinyl cutters, sewing machines, button makers, and 3D printers. Plus Adobe Creative Cloud access for our members and mentors. Mentors will work alongside teens, sharing their skills and knowledge and creating a resource for members.


MEMBERS

DISCOVERING NEW MEDIUMS FOR CREATIVITY

Days, weeks, even months are spent on projects that they find personally meaningful. Through their participation, members develop skills that help them reach personal, educational, and career goals.
