Effective Immediately. All classes are at the High School Studio Location.

**NOTE: During camp weeks we close each day at 5:30pm. Our field equipment is not as readily available as usual because our campers take priority with the gear. If you’d like to reserve a camera or use an editing bay please contact the Training Coordinator at least 2 weeks in advance. There is no guarantee that we’ll be able to meet your request.**
