Hansens Classes

Hinkley's NEW Business-Entertainment & Technology Pathway includes current courses in Business, Entertainment Media & Computer Technology. Gina Hansen is one of four instructors in this program teaching the fundamental building blocks of this dynamic new program for the 2020-21 school year. When we return to the building, in a second year of Entertainment Media, students can expect to deepen their knowledge of motion graphics, 3d-modeling & architecture, industry audio and film techniques, and project management of game development build teams.

If you've discovered a noteworthy creative app idea in the past five months you really like that you think would be worth adding to our class list for working from home, PLEASE EMAIL hansensclasses@gmail.com

I am aware that when you signed up for these courses, you may have thought they were about something else. When class begins, we'll discuss what you hope to accomplish. Counselors are VERY busy right now working on schedules. Email your ?s to them. Its gonna be an exciting year!

FORMER STUDENTS: Those from Previous Courses may still feel free to request letters of recommendation or even just check in via IG or Remind. Your teacher always loves to hear how you are doing. Also, its a small world and we are all connected. When its time for job searching, I'm happy to connect you to any connections I have in the field as your professional skills and qualifications grow or if you want to come back and share your knowledge with our community by talking with students and sharing your own life knowledge.
