About the Peekskill Center for the Digital Arts
The Center for the Digital Arts, Peekskill Extension, is one of the Hudson Valley’s premier digital arts resources located in the downtown artist district of Peekskill. The Center, an extension location of Westchester Community College, has five post-production studios at 27 North Division Street and is dedicated to fostering digital arts education. Whether you are interested in developing a web portfolio, recording an MP3 for your iPod or just getting into blogging, the Center for the Digital Arts is an access point to creating art in the digital age.
In 1994, the Center for the Digital Arts opened at its current location. This Center offers 3-credit courses in digital imaging, graphic layout design, web design, 2D and 3D animation, digital filmmaking, and motion graphics. The Center also offers non-credit adult Quick Start courses in software training and a pre-college program in the digital arts. In addition to arts courses, this Center offers a wide range of general education courses, English as a Second Language (ESL), academic support and advisement, and other student services. Currently, this facility serves over 1,500 students per term.
This Center is part of the lifeblood of the arts community in Peekskill and an integral component of the fabric of the northern Westchester and Putnam communities. We serve these communities through course offerings, lectures, workshops, and exhibition events. Be sure to visit the Peekskill Events page to view our schedule.
