The Learning Studio will also be hosting a Digital Storytelling workshop May 15-17. This three-day workshop leads you through the process of creating a media project. Participants will learn media storytelling strategies as they develop skills in audio recording and image/video editing, so we hope you’ll join us even if you’ve never worked with media before.

Here is a quick summary of the workshop:
DAY 1:  Talk about the elements of story, begin sharing stories and working on scripts
DAY 2:  Gather images, begin editing stories and recording audio.
DAY 3:  Finalize editing and production and screen all films. (should be finished early-afternoon)

There are a limited number of slots, so please RSVP today if you can join us by emailing or call 325-674-2455.

Lunches will be in the Adams Center and then all participants will be invited to a final dinner Thursday night (optional).
