SONY PICTURES MEDIA ARTS PROGRAM

October 2016 to June 2017

Students from all over Los Angeles participate in this media arts program. Students will read The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson and create original short films, which will be screened at the culminating event.

This 30-week, tuition-free media arts program, held after-school twice a week, is for middle school students aged 10 to 14. Students learn drawing and painting techniques and how to draw from a model, animate, put together an art portfolio, and create artwork on computers. The program culminates in a public exhibition and screening of the artwork produced by the students. This program is part of the Sony Pictures Media Arts Program, a partnership between the CalArts Community Arts Partnership, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Grand Performances 2017 Season
