CSV is also excited to formalize our workshop auditing process. Our new auditing positions contribute to fulfilling our mandate to provide accessible media art education. If you are interested in auditing a workshop, please email for application information.

To secure your registration, participants are required to pay for their session. CSV reserves the right to cancel workshop sessions, in which case its liability shall be limited to refunding or crediting against the participant's account the amount of their payment. Registered participants may cancel up to 2 business days in advance without incurring a penalty. There will be no refunds issued for cancellations made less than 2 business days before the start date of a workshop.

STUDENT SPECIAL  Students pay only 50% of the non-member rate for workshops.  Student rate registrations must be done with valid student ID in person at CSV during office hours.  

ON DEMAND & One-on-One Consultations

Our new on-demand workshops provide flexibility for people unable to attend a scheduled workshop. If you are interested in taking a particular workshop and can find at least 2 other people who are also interested, we will work to schedule that workshop on a day and time that is convenient for you and at no more cost than our normal workshop rates.

For an additional fee, we are able to provide one-on-one consultations on the topics of our workshops, or other media art and digital cinema topics.

If interested, please email

We can accommodate any of our listed workshops through the on-demand and one-on-one program. Popular on-demand and one-on-one topics include:
