Students also learn to use video and digital cameras as well other state of the art technical equipment. These students work in conjunction with other programs at the Center by documenting workshops and events, producing videos using computer technology as well creating/producing/engineering music in the recording studio and other state of the art technical equipment. It is our goal to bring awareness to One Art programs through video, recordings and photos of our activities, events, projects, and programs. By documenting and reporting our efforts we intend to broaden our outreach. These multimedia features will be utilized and documented by our interns and will be available to the public.
