Courses, After School & Other Opportunities

The Media Arts Studio offers media education courses from introductory through advanced levels, after school clubs, and real world opportunities in the field of media arts and production technology.

Media Arts Studio After School Clubs
Create your own animations and video art. Experiment with computer animation software, and create projects using hand drawing and stop-motion animation.

Learn to record your own music, podcasts, and tracks. Use ProTools, GarageBand, and shareware to bring your audio ideas to life. 

Media Journalism
Help produce two TV series:

  • Falcon Sports World (FSW): With a focus on CRLS athletics, the FSW team covers a variety of sports in the field and in-studio. Go Falcons!
  • Youth View Cambridge (YVC): Students produce a bimonthly news magazine combining current events with local and school news.
Production Assistant Program
Production Assistants work at the Media Arts Studio after school up to 10 hours a week and are paid through the RSTA First Work program. Camera, studio, and editing training are provided. Responsibilities include recording and editing school news, sports and events, creating station promos, and special creative projects.

Student Media Resource Center
CPS students may drop in to the Media Arts Studio after school for one-on-one support or resources to complete media-related projects for their classes.

Internships and Individual Projects
Students create their own narrative or documentary style production as they learn camera skills, editing and use of other multi-media software. Students may arrange to receive credit through the CRLS Internship and Service-Learning Office.
