Here, through the lenses The Advanced Digital Media Class for Teens at 12th Ave’s Photo Center NW, is another look at a changing Capitol Hill. Nice work, kids.
Photographic Center Northwest located in Seattle, Washington offers teen workshops that help youth advance their creative skills in photography and digital media. The Advanced Digital Media Workshop offers teens the chance to create a multimedia piece where they use their photographic skills to tell a story.
In this particular class, our multimedia project explored the changes happening on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. Capitol Hill has long been considered the heart of Seattle’s alternative culture and lifestyles, but with a mass population increase and influx of new business the landscape is rapidly transforming.
Through the use of photography, video, and audio skills gained in the workshop; the students created the multimedia piece, Capitol Hill in Transition, which looks at the changing cultural demographics and economics sweeping the area.
