Digital Arts at CWSA

In September 2015 Claude Watson School for the Arts began offering digital arts.  Students in grades 5 - 8 will use digital cameras, iMacs, iPads and other items to produce and study a wide range of art.  Media Literacy is being integrated into our Digital Arts program to give students the necessary tools to be responsible digital citizens.

This year our Digital Arts program is designed as follows:
  • Grade 5 students will learn the basics of digital photography
  • Grade 6 students will create digital music using programs like Garage Band.  Grade 6 students are also introduced to coding.   
  • Grade 7 students will learn about digital photography using cameras and programs like Photoshop
  • Grade 8 students will be introduced to digital video production using programs like iMovie and Final Cut Pro
