What We Do
The Digital Media Arts program is the home of creativity and collaborative project-based-learning at 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 helps students enhance their vision of the world through photography by mastering cameras and manipulation software like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. In the second quarter, students learn new ways of communicating and work with professionals in the community during our graphic design unit. During the third and forth quarter, students learn about music production and begin our advanced filmmaking unit where they master industry-standard camera equipment and software. Whether it is through photography, graphics, film, music, web design, or animation, "DMA" students master creativity for the entire world of media possibilities.
"DMA" now offers a second-year program for advanced study within your chosen media path. DMA II's curriculum puts an emphasis on portfolio development to advance your career and/or secondary education.
