Our Digital Media Centre (DMC) is based in two beautiful airy rooms overlooking the grounds at the rear of our Georgian mansion house, one of which contains our white studio backdrop. The Centre offers a range of recreational courses and workshops, as well as being the base for SHPLive, our live streaming service.
The DMC workshop room, housed in the John Nike Suite, is comprehensively equipped with multi-media software and peripheral equipment to offer a versatile production environment for a wide range of projects.
Every Half Term is for Young People, we hold exciting creative workshops for the next generation of digital artistes.
Our Silver Surfers workshops are easy to follow recreational courses aimed at an older audience wishing to learn more about the internet or how to use their device, be it an iPad, android tablet or computer. From Apps to Zip files, and everything in between. A relaxed two hour session on getting the most out of modern technology. All those technology related questions you’ve been looking for answers to but never known who to ask. The courses run on a Thursday in the Digital Media Centre, on the first floor of South Hill Park Arts Centre. FREE hot or soft drink with every booking.
We develop many strands of activity here: software training, creative technology weekends, video and animation production work, and digital photography (including portrait work in our own photographic studio).
Our tutors are all practising artists and professional media producers, with experience of communicating their skills in an educational setting.
Our philosophy is to emphasise the huge potential for creativity in the digital environment while our small group sizes mean that you are able to progress towards achieving your goals at your own pace. Whatever your previous experience, the appropriate course will lead you towards greater technical knowledge and ability to visualise, plan and create your own desired end result.
Each participant on our evening and weekend workshops has their own dedicated workstation for the duration of the course.
