We’re teaming up with local organizations like POWGirls, YMCA, Multnomah County Library, and the city of Gresham for continued media education through the summer! Check out MetroEast Classes for more details on regularly offered workshops!

YouTube and TikTok Camp

YouTube and TikTok are arguably the most popular venues for video distribution. They provide a venue for users to share their ideas and talents. If you want to share your work it behooves artists to know about these platforms and how to produce videos with high production quality! This camp will teach participants the basics of composition, light, audio, editing and storytelling on a mobile device. They’ll learn how to plan their production so it meets their desired aesthetic and how to distribute the final product to reach the most people.

Dates and Times: June 26- June 30, 1:30pm- 4pm
