Members Price: $350
Non Members Price: $350
A bold primer in both sailing fundamentals and renegade filmmaking brought to you jointly by 911 Media Arts and The Center for Wooden Boats. ARRRGH! Students will learn to sail, and shoot and edit digital video as they make films related to boats and the water. The meaning, value, and history of piracy in all contexts will be laid open to interpretation, while students are supplied with the tools and skills they need to for such a journey into uncharted waters. By combining the physical immediacy of sailing with the voice and power of filmmaking, the class hopes to provide students with some survival skills for navigating the strange seas of our time. For ages 11-15.
