Spark Studios Fall Program Has Begun for New Students

Spark Studios students are learning the basic fundamentals of photography this fall with a new group of teens ages 14-19. This semester, students learn filmmaking and videography in order to develop their film production and professional skills including:

  • Working with clients on commercial videos
  •  Bringing a creative vision to life across stages of production

Youth who complete Spark Studios can earn a $100 stipend. The Art Effect’s Youth Workforce Training Programs empowers youth to develop their artistic voice to shape their futures by giving them the opportunity to develop real skills, and guiding them towards achieving their academic and career goals.
