our programs


No Cost, Full Commitment

All youth and adult programs are offered at no cost to any student. This includes tuition and supplies. We are grateful to the support of our donors who make this possible. 

Youth Arts for High School Students

Our Fall 2019 Filmmaking Course for high school students will take place after-school on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4:15pm to 7pm. Students will work together to create a short film by gaining an understanding of all aspects of filmmaking including genres, storyboarding, lighting, pitching, scriptwriting, auditioning, production and post-production. 

Classroom sessions will be held at Radius Co-Work at 1001 State Street. Local artist and film professional John C. Lyons will serve as Course Instructor with guest speakers from various sectors in the field. 

All course materials are provided at no cost to any student. Students must have their own transportation to and from the course location (bus tokens will be provided as needed). 

Space is limited to 8 students so download the Fall 2019 Filmmaking Course registration packet and reserve your spot today! Email registration information to daria@eriecat.org.

UPDATE: ECAT students are now seeking actors to audition for their production of "Vows." Auditions will take place on Monday, 11/11 at 4:30pm at Radius Co-Work (1001 State Street, 9th Floor). Download the script here.
