Motion Picture Arts Opportunities (grades 6-9)
The Motion Picture Arts department offers two classes in the Intermediate division (grades 6-9), Animation and Intro to Filmmaking. These classes may be taken as electives within other programs.
Although a formal Intermediate Motion Picture Arts program is not available at this time, young filmmakers often explore Creative Writing, Theatre or Visual Arts to build their visual story-telling, writing, and theatrical skills.
