“Discover” is the theme of Artscape this weekend, the nation's largest free arts festival.

We preview Teenscape: Jimmie Thomas, principal of the Media Rhythm Institute, tells how students learn artistic and technical skills for careers in the music industry. And we meet up-and-coming performers, emcee Shania Norris and rapper Saniyah Fletcher. Catch their performance on Saturday at Motor House from 5-7 pm. 

Then, Gamescape: Baltimore board chair of the International Game Developers Association, Jonathan Moriarty, describes some of the games and companies taking part and explains the artistic thinking in video games. Check out Gamescape at 1915 Maryland Ave.
