Program Description: We are happy to announce open registration for the library’s second iteration of Winter Hack, a digital art media camp that runs during the school winter recess. Digital art is a medium that uses digital technology to create works of art. Participants will learn how to use the differing programs necessary to construct, share and maximize ideas culminating in a collaborative session in which participants will create their own work on site at the Hudson Area Library.
These labs encompass video and images made for but not limited to digital distribution. Join filmmaker and music video director Zia Anger and photographer Yulia Zinshtein to create photography, gifs and video using open source or free software. Winter Hack is an abridged version of the library’s successful digital art summer program Hack The Library!.
