Media Arts
The Media Arts program gives students the opportunity to creatively explore new media. The introduction year gives students skills and techniques in black and white photography, digital imaging, video, and all interactive media. These foundation skills can be expanded on in higher level courses that explore the creative use of digital mediums.  Students are expected to take grade nine visual arts as a preparation for media arts.
