The California Center for Digital Arts is more than a collection of useful equipment, studios, classrooms, and top-flight teachers. We are a student resource for beginners, and a source of inspiration for advanced image/video creators developing new, or expanding, visual voices.

  • We offer classes for beginning and professional photographers
  • We offer digital arts classes from certified teachers
  • We offer studio and gallery space for rent and student use

We are a place where students learn to think in visual terms; we ground ourselves in the fundamentals, and revel in those wonderful ‘ah-ha!’ moments when a student grasps concepts that turn into incredible images.

At The Center we personally answer phone calls, welcome you with a handshake and a cup of coffee, and listen to you tell us what you want to know and where you want to go. We feel your struggles but never waver in helping you achieve your goals, and celebrate with you when you shout, “I get it!” We are strangers who quickly become your personal mentors, people who can reach over your hand and move your fingers to the right camera button, push the correct keystroke, or help you flip the correct light switch.

We are teachers, but we are also an experience; we are the people and times you will remember every time you squeeze the shutter button, light up a studio, or launch your digital applications in the future.

The California Center for Digital Arts is teacher-owned by individuals who are mentors, by teachers who believe that hands-on learning is the best way to develop skills, and by instructors who believe that an encouraging and supportive environment helps you grow and create.
