California Center for Digital Arts

The California Center for Digital Arts teaches students how to master modern mediums such as photography or Adobe Digital products using an ancient method: mentorship. The teachers, who are also the center's owners, use the mentorship method of instruction to help students proceed at their own paces. They work with students in small groups, or even one-on-one, providing two to five days of on-campus, hands-on learning. Students return, their progress is evaluated, and the cycle begins over again.

The exercises teachers assign aren't overly structured or abstract; rather, they charge students with completing real-world commissions from clients, so that they learn the realities of an artistic career alongside the theories. While mastering composition, color, and lighting, students must also deal with deadlines and the tiny ghost that lives inside every camera, drawing the pictures they take.

Customer Reviews

The content of the class (Basic Photography 1) was very easy to understand. David is a great instructor. I highly recommend it. I'll definitely be enrolling in Basic photography 2.

Dave is an excellent teacher. Learned more in 3 hrs than had previously in a full semester with an instructor at a local college. He really gets you connected to your camera and makes it easy.

Great class. David is very good at explaining things in a simple to understand way. The 3 hours went by really fast. I learned a lot. Highly recommend this class, and Groupon price makes it even better.
