"The Hollywood Workshop"

Donation protected
I’ve been dreaming about opening a hot spot downtown for learning, art and entertainment. "The Hollywood Workshop" will be a place where you can hang with your friends, have some laughs, enjoy a glass of wine or beer, munch on some food, listen to music or poetry, and expand your creative knowledge and computer skills. 


Classes for the Everyman / Everywoman...
The classes will be geared towards the person who does not want to spend a fortune on college loans, but wants to learn the latest technology and creative trends at their own pace in a casual environment.

- Computer Classes: 
The classes will be taught using the top programs from Adobe, Apple, and Microsoft in the areas of: web design, graphics, audio and video production, social media, and more.

- Artist Workshops: 
Weekly 'Artist Series' featuring lessons in acting, scriptwriting, songwriting, technology, and more taught by professionals.

- Photography/Videography: 
'Learn from the Pros' the art of filming from lighting to post production.

- Other Classes & Events:
Live performances, get togethers, tech specs, and more.

*With enough donations we can open a larger venue that can showcase live musical acts, poetry readings, lectures, and other performances!

There are four levels of programs...

- Basic Classes:
The Basic Classes instructs users on how to use their own computers, tablets, phones, and digital items. Other basic courses will be focused on utilizing the internet, email accounts, blogging, facebook, and social media.

- Focused Classes:
The Focused Classes are geared towards teaching specific programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, Protools, etc.

- Advanced Classes:
The Advanced Classes feature subjects that normally a person would have to sign up at a 4 year college to learn, and will be taught by experts in the field.

- Group Workshops: 
From Artist Series to Yoga Classes, the Group Workshops will be fun and enjoyable for everyone!

Downtown Hollywood has such magical charm with it's old florida style that I know this type of business would be great for the community. I have had this dream for over sixteen years, but I have never been able to build the capital or the collateral to make it a reality.

I am truly grateful for this opportunity, and it would be wonderful if you could invest in this project by giving a donation or by purchasing one of my services.
