Looking for Volunteers and Mentors!
Are you interested in leading or assisting technology-based art classes? Our programming this fall will include classes for teenagers and young adults teaching commercially-applicable skills for creative industries. Oakwood Arts + P35 is looking for mentors and volunteers with experience in working with graphic design, web design, costume design, photography, animation, and film and video (editing and production).
The folks here at Oakwood Arts are ramping up for our fall 2018 programming, which we're beyond excited to announce and begin putting to work! This fall we're looking forward to offering a biweekly digital photography class and the fall session of our digital storytelling class, among a few other events, programs, and classes.
We would love to have you on our team to help teach these classes and guide these students!
Read on to find our more about our upcoming programs and how you could lend your abilities.
Oakwood Arts' Mission is to make art and careers in creative industries accessible to all through community engagement, inspiring programming, and experiential education. We plant the seeds of artistic entrepreneurship through lectures, mentoring, and networking events and guide interested students in the preparation of portfolios required for applications to art magnet high schools and college art programs
Our Fall 2018 Programming:
Digital Photography at AJC
This coming semester, we'll be partnering with the Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School to offer a biweekly digital photography class, which will help students produce and edit content for a school-sponsored literary magazine.
Fall Session of Digital Storytelling
Briget Ganske, the resident videographer for the VMFA, will run a week-long workshop to teach students about different ways to share personal narratives and make self-portraits, as well as how to use DSLR cameras to make videos. By the end of the week, students use their newfound production talents to make some amazing self-portraits!
Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club
We're also thrilled to be getting in the spooky spirit by putting on a halloween themed program in tandem with the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club. Middle and high school students will design and create sets, while our elementary school students will create costumes.
Turn Around Arts
This year we will be working with elementary and middle school students at two Turn Around Arts schools: Woodville and MLK. Students will take part in technology based arts classes learning from professionals in creative fields.
