Intense. Creative. Inspiring.

Students aspiring to careers as artists and working professionals in the world of media arts become fluent in multiple forms of visual media in order to effectively tell a story – whether it is one of personal expression, documentary journalism, social advocacy, or fictional narrative. The Maine Media Workshops + College Professional Certificate in Visual Storytelling is a 30 Week program designed to graduate visual storytellers with the skills, vision, experience, and knowledge needed to build a career in the evolving field of media arts.

What our students say

"The solid foundation I needed in my work was [enhanced] with the broad support and the professional and personal dedication of Tom Ryan, Elizabeth Greenberg and Brenton Hamilton. This team, along with students I worked with from the MFA program and community workshop participants, provided me with a network of support during a time where networking seemed an impossible hope."

-Rob Schulz, PCVS Graduate 2020 (On being a student during the COVID-19 Pandemic)

"As my year out of the program has progressed, the perceived value has blossomed. I’m seeing how instrumental a lot of the practices were and how that helped to develop our skills. I’m capable of working in processes and creating products that people who have been in the industry for years, can not."

-Nikolas Hample, PCVS graduate 2017
