New Dimensions

For Educators
Extend your Classroom!
New Dimensions is an innovative program for middle and high school students that use technology to connect to, explore and analyze art. One-day workshops or multiple visits culminate in the creation of a multimedia project using traditional and digital media including iLife and iStopMotion software on MacBook computers. We will work with you to customize a program that complements classroom curriculum themes and your time frame.

For Community Organizations

Are you a Youth Development Professional seeking positive experiences for teens? Through a New Dimensions digital media project, teens can expand their thinking, explore their abilities and build 21st 21st-century skills.
