EVC Launches New Media Arts Apprenticeship
Updated: Dec 22, 2021
The first part of this credit-bearing workshop begins this spring at EVC’s newly outfitted maker space. Coordinated by EVC alumna and workshop Co-Director Christine L. Mendoza, and two digital media teaching artists, Corey Boling and Lindsay Harris, each of the twenty-five participants have access to a Mac workstation and receive hands-on training with industry-standard programs like Adobe Premiere and Photoshop, in addition to applications including Mozilla Popcorn and Aniboom Shapeshifter. This new equipment and design software are funded in part through a TechGrant from the TechFoundation. “EVC thoughtfully combines technology and an experiential learning model to attract and train the next generation of social entrepreneurs. TechFoundation is proud to provide financial and technical support to expand the reach of EVC,” according to David Altshuler, Executive Director of TechFoundation.
EVC will present work from this apprenticeship at the Digital Media and Learning Conference in Boston this March and celebrate the launch of the students’ transmedia projects with a public exhibition at the end of the semester in June. These events are part of EVC’s 30th anniversary celebrations throughout the year, including the “Through Our Eyes” retrospective series and the annual spring Benefit Premiere Screening and Fundraiser at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
