Echo AiR 

Are you interested in 3-D printing, virtual reality, animation or digital media?

Apply for this after-school program! We'll be taking applications starting next fall.

Portland Community Media (PCM) and the Hollywood Theatre are proud to present a new artists’ residency program for teens who want to create new media art. No experience required! 

You’ll get to explore new trends in digital media in classes taught by experienced artists. Past Echo AiR students have taken a stance on important issues with arts activist Moreshin Allahyari, coded exciting visual art pieces with Jeremy Rotsztain and more.

Students meet every Monday and Thursday from 4:30-6:30pm at Wacom Experience Center (1455 NW Irving). Mondays, you’ll learn new techniques from guest artists, and Thursdays, you’ll get to work on projects of your own, using PCM’s cutting-edge equipment. 

At the end of the program, you’ll present your projects to the public with a massive group show!

Cost is $100 (sliding scale).
