HCAM Training Workshop: What's It All About?

Although summer around Hopkinton may be slow, the HCAM studio is a busy place, hosting a weekly workshop for community members of all ages interested in learning about all of the aspects that go into the creation of a television show.

During the 5-week-long hands-on course, participants learn about producing, directing, the control room, editing, and camera operation.

The ultimate goal of the workshop is to train participants in all facets of television production so that they can both work on existing HCAM programming or even create their own show for the channel.

The next training session is scheduled to begin within the next month or two. Registration is ongoing on a first-come first-served basis at

Watch the HCAM News video below to hear what the participants thought about their experience at HCAM and think about signing up for our next class!

More Crafts at the Hopkinton Public Library

As part of the library's "Dig into Reading" summer theme, on August 12th, teachers Gretchen Stephan and Beth Newman from Whitehall Farm Studios came in to teach those in attendance about patterns in nature. The particular pattern that this activity focused on was spirals. One animal that fits the spiral pattern is a snail, which tied into the "Dig into Reading" motif. And to illustrate to those in attendance about the spiral pattern of a snail, the children made their own snails out of clay by rolling them out and then coiling them into a snail-like shape. They also had a chance to draw and color in their own spiral pattern inside an outline of a snail.
