Creative Arts

In Control of Rochester NY’s Creative Arts Experiences provide you with the opportunity to follow your creative passions. From music lessons to acting classes to photography, there’s no limit to what you can learn.

Our goal is to foster creative imagination in a variety of
media based on your interest.

Video Production

In this 10-12 week program you will learn the basics of scriptwriting and video production, including how to write and produce a script on issues you and your friends may face or bring awareness to topics that are important to you. The final script for production will be decided by the participants. Once the scripts are written, you choose how you want to be involved in the video production process— video crew (behind the camera) or the cast (in front of the camera). You will then produce Public Service Announcements (PSAs) and content that can be viewed on television and social media.
