April Dobbins to be Guest Artist Speaker at South Miami Arts Charter

Girls & Gear will be heading to South Miami’s art charter school to talk to students in the Cat & Cie program about filmmaking. She’ll be screening work from Alabamaland and discussing some of her photography projects. The guest artist lectures serve to inspire students by providing them with real-life examples of working artists. April will also discuss the tools she uses to make films and show the students some examples of how to set up a scene.
