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 10 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.
