As young people consume more and more information through media every day, they must be equipped to analyze and critically engage with these platforms. That’s where media arts instruction comes in, providing the tools necessary for young people to better understand the world through visual communication.

Our Film-Ed Field Trip screenings offer students the chance to experience thought-provoking film programs throughout the school year. Screenings are available for grades K-8 and include post-screening Q&As and discussion guides for teachers.
