What We Do
Digital Media Arts is the home of creativity and forward thinking for the Career Center. Using some of the latest technologies and in anticipation of technologies to come, our students have all the tools needed to design and create in both artistic and professional settings. Combining many media types, career paths, and industry trends, the curriculum of Digital Media Arts takes a progressive approach to learning. The first quarter involves extensive practice in photography and photo manipulation. The second quarter switches the approach to focus on graphic design, including use of our full print and vinyl print shop. The third and fourth quarters introduce digital filmmaking, leading students into film editing, digital cinematography, 2D animation, 3D visual effects, and sound design. Web design and music production are also incorporated into the curriculum throughout the year.
