Art shouldn't be something made by the talented few to be consumed by the untalented many. Everybody has a story worthy of being told. The trick is finding your medium.
Use the creative process independently and collaboratively to produce and present media art works that incorporate the principles of media arts and the elements of the contributing arts. Explore traditional and emerging technologies, tools, and techniques to create works for a variety of audiences. Use the critical analysis process to develop their understanding of and appreciation for media art works. Examine the interrelationships between media art works and individual and cultural identities and values, generating a deeper understanding of themselves and the communities in which they live. Acquire theoretical concepts and a specialized vocabulary for evaluating their own creations and the work of other media artists; learn about the historical and sociocultural contexts of media arts and examine ethical, environmental, and safety issues associated with this art form.
