NEW MEDIA ARTS APPRENTICESHIP
Created in 2012, EVC’s award-winning multimedia program New Media Arts Apprenticeship prepares young people for college and careers in new digital media arts.
New Media Arts Apprenticeship (NMA) is a credit-bearing afterschool and summer program in which youth in high school create interactive websites exploring a community issue of relevance to them.
This two-part program runs two afternoons a week for 15 weeks in the Spring semester, followed by a paid Summer internship for 6 weeks as an NMA apprentice.
Youth learn to create interactive websites, update and remix an EVC archival social justice documentary, shoot and edit video and photos. Youth learn Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Wix, and other industry-standard software.
The students’ final interactive websites are presented and celebrated at a public premiere and are broadly disseminated. Students who successfully present their portfolios at the end of the semester are eligible for high school credit. Youth gain industry-standard digital imaging and editing skills and NMA opens pathways to college-level media arts programs.
