Sacramento State donated 10 computers and the technology necessary for children to experience and create digital art. The donation had a value of $12,000.

“When we upgraded our design labs campus, we were excited to be able to donate computers to Blue Line and to put this technology to work for young people in the community,” Dean Inch said.

In partnership with its school and youth organization partners, Blue Line will offer a multi-week class for children 5 to 17 to focus on story board illustration, artist renderings, graphic design, musical score or composition, acting and digital integration. Each child will produce audio-visual active books, films and learn skills to create imagery.

“We expect to annually serve more than 300 children through this program,” Blue Line Arts CEO Julie Hirota said. “Scholarships will be available for up to 20 percent of the students, and it’s adaptable for non-English speaking children, and children with disabilities.”
