Digital Media Art In Our Middle School

Middle School students in our Digital Media Arts class are challenged to express ideas through digital media technology. They explore a wide range of programs, software, and applications to create images, photographs, videos, websites, and more. As a part of the class, students work individually as well as collaboratively, while considering their intended audience, mode of expression, and editing skills. 

Each semester, digital art class display their artwork at the Middle School Arts Night concert as well as create online portfolios to show their work and describe their process.
