The Academy


The Academy at Painted Brain refers to our training programs for community members. Participation in our workshops are free and occasionally include a stipend of support as well. The Coding Academy, currently offered at our community center every Wednesday, is experience-based learning in the creation of apps, websites and other web programming challenges. Our Journalism Academy is a six-week training course in experiential learning around various aspects of journalism including photojournalism, interviewing skills, editorial writing, reporting, research, and the use of social media to promote ideas and gather information.



Join us at Painted Brain headquarters in the heart of Los Angeles. The coding group is a weekly workshop led by an experienced software developer, teaching basic skills on creating websites, apps, and graphic design fundamentals.
