Filmmaker Jamie Howell is set to teach a Spring Break Film Workshop March 25 to Central Oregon high school students who are participants in Caldera’s year-round Youth Program. Over three days, Howell will guide the students through every step of the filmmaking process, from concept to final cut. This will include conducting interviews with artists from the Confederated Tribes at Warm Springs and filming them as they work. Each completed documentary will feature a different artist.
Howell is one of nine artists completing a residency with Caldera in March and his position was created through a collaboration between Caldera, BendFilm, and The Museum at Warm Springs.
Howell will present during Open Studios at the Caldera Arts Center on Saturday, March 25 at 12:30pm.

Caldera’s mission is to be a catalyst for the transformation of underserved youth through innovative, year-round art and environmental programs. Our Youth Program serves Oregon youth from urban and rural communities who have limited access to educational and economic resources. Each year we support over 400 youth from Central Oregon and Portland, integrating over 100 professional youth workers, artists, and environmental specialists as mentors and teachers. Our mentors and artists nurture individual creativity to ignite self-expression and transform the way young people engage in their lives, families, and communities. In 2015, Caldera received a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award from First Lady Michelle Obama, recognizing Caldera as one of the top youth arts programs in the nation.
