Saul Zaentz Charitable Foundation Film Pilot
Select students are already hard at work trying their hand at filmmaking thanks to a grant from the Saul Zaentz Charitable Foundation to pilot an exciting new program. Students will be introduced to film as a social practice and as a visual medium for storytelling and will create a documentary or a narrative film with the overarching theme of "I Love Baltimore." The 6-week is taking place in the school's Center for Collaborative Arts & Technology, a state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary lab that houses many of the tools required for filmmaking. For more information, contact Bea Bufrahi at email@example.com. This program is for current BSA students only. To see a piece on the program that aired on WJZ, click here.

Junior Scholars study across the country and abroad

"TWIGS was a chance for me to be with other kids I was not in school with, to be with different teachers who were serious about art."
