Digital Media Arts

Course Description

The Digital Media Arts (DMA) program provides students with skills and experiences in digital communications for the television, video, music production, and broadband industries. We have partnered with local employers, "The Wenatchee Wild", the "NCW Life Channel", "Digital Media Northwest", "Kenaston Music Productions", "Stagekids", and "Voortex Productions" to provide jobs for students in broadcasting/livestreaming, advertising, multimedia, camera operation, multitrack recording, and live audio production. Our 9-12th grade students make $50/game as camera operators with The WIld, and $75/game with The NCWLife Channel. 

Teamwork is emphasized in scripting, producing, recording and editing commercials, interviews and short feature projects.  There is College Credit available for this course through articulation with Spokane Falls Community College.  Check out our program pathway for getting into these careers.

Every student in DMA gets access the the full Adobe Creative Cloud 2020 suite of software on any computer, anywhere with an internet connection.  This includes: Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Lightroom, Audition, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Character Animator, Animate, Dimension, and more.  Students will be issued a web version of "Learn Adobe Premiere Pro CC for Video Communication" by Joe Dockery and Conrad Chavez.  We will be completing coursework from this book, and preparing to take the Adobe Premiere Pro Certification Test.

Skills that are helpful and reinforced in this program include: writing and communiciation, listening, organization, time management, interpersonal and leadership, saying "yes" to opportunity,  and becoming a quality team player with a positive attitude.
