About Boulder Digital Arts

Whether you work in film, photography, design, technology or business, we seek to empower your creative process with membership, resources, education, events, community and collaboration.

Our membership program allows you to join a unique community of over 600 peers and provides you privileged access to all BDA has to offer.

Our innovative training is high-demand topics ranging from web development to photography to social media marketing. We focus on amazing in-person classes that have been carefully crafted for the modern world to be accessible and practical. Many classes are one day or one evening so they fit perfectly into the lives of busy people who don’t have the time for traditional educational programs. All our classes are taught by industry professionals who teach cutting-edge tools and techniques with an emphasis on practical skills.

In 2015, BDA will be launching a Code School at our Boulder, Colorado campus. The Code School will offer intensive programming bootcamps that includes coursework during the day and application of this new knowledge during evenings and weekends. Students will graduate effectively “job-ready” as junior developers and our team will help them find a job that matches their goals. The combination of intense demand for new tech talent and this type of real-world skills intensive training creates an extraordinary opportunity for the right type of person who has the appropriate aptitude and motivation!
