Looking to stay active during the fall break Oct. 14 to 17? Look no further, High Five Access Media has you covered. We’ll be offering youth ages 13 to 18 free half-hour demonstrations from 10 to 10:30 a.m. on multimedia, video coloring, Claymation and green screens.

Following the demos, youth may take advantage of open studio hours from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to create media based on the demonstration, or work on another project. Certified community producers may checkout video equipment during these hours to work on their projects. This event is unsupervised. Youth are asked to come prepared with a project to work on.
