Summer 2017
Monday-Thursday, July 31 – August 3
Long Beach City College/Liberal Arts Campus

Best Places


On the beautiful, Spanish-style Liberal Arts campus of Long Beach City College—located less than a mile from the Long Beach Airport—the wide lawns, one and two-story architecturally interesting buildings within easy walking distance of each other provide the setting for new possibilities in eight individual sessions! This summer we have a new curriculum including an inaugural session on Video/Broadcast, and a re-vamped social media session—Multimedia Storytelling.
