South Central and Hollywood have a lot more in common than you might think: just look to what we’re producing in our Digital Media Arts Lab, established in 2009 in collaboration with FilAM Arts. APCH members receive training in digital graphics and fashion design via Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, and learn photography, filmmaking and audio engineering using industry-standard software like FinalCut and ProTools. In addition to artistic expression, fun and creativity, APCH programs introduce students to state of the art technology and techniques that help them develop marketable skills for their path ahead.
APCH members’ video projects screen at our Community Movie Nights, on our YouTube Channel, and have been entered into youth film festivals. Their photos have hung in galleries around the city. Their designs are in art cards and on tee shirts. Here are some can’t-miss highlights of our kids’ work: Multimedia Gallery/youtube.
