Summer Shorts returns for another year of creative development

Do you know a creative teen looking for something fun to do this summer? The School of Media, Art & Design presents Summer Shorts! Creative workshops for teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17. 

Throughout the month of July, several unique, week-long workshops will be available, simulating full-time college programs and will give teenagers the opportunity to work in state-of-the-art studios with the latest software. 

Through these workshops, there will be opportunities to learn how to use Adobe Creative Suite, including Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, gain working knowledge of digital SLR cameras and accessories and, with Riot Radio, learn radio broadcasting through the development of a live newscast. Teenagers will also have the opportunity to learn about other areas of media, art and design, including Digital Video, Game Development and Animation. By the end of each session, students will have great pieces to add to their portfolios.

Each workshop is $295 plus HST and each workshop category has four sessions to choose from. Teens may take as many different courses as they desire, in any order. Multi-registration and sibling rates are available if registering for more than one course or registering more than one child in the available workshops.

Summer Shorts runs Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at DC’s Oshawa campus.
