About Classes and Workshops
ONTV offers classes and workshops in audio/video production throughout the year for residents and non-residents alike. Classes range from a couple of hours all the way up to 5 weeks depending on the subject matter. Classes are taught at a beginner level, but for advanced users, the ONTV staff can work with you to hone your skills as well! Classes are open to ages 12 and up. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Those who complete the 10-week Video Production course are considered ONTV volunteers! Volunteers are the heart of ONTV! Volunteers are approved to check out field equipment, reserve studio and editing time, attend Volunteer only events and workshops at no added cost. ONTV calls on our Volunteers to help us shoot news stories, studio shows, concerts, graduations, sporting events, plus much more.
Classes are updated throughout the year. Call ONTV at 248-393-1060 for class schedules.
