The Arts Education Branch has established eight Demonstration Media Arts Classrooms (DMACs) at selected school sites in each local district to build capacity for a high-quality standards-based Media Arts program.
DMAC sites are intended to exemplify an expanded, comprehensive model of facilities, equipment and instructional practices as a resource for local developing and existing media arts programs. Participating Media Arts Lead Teachers will serve as regional resources for professional and curriculum development initiatives.
Metropolitan High and Metropolitan Community Day School are proud to host the DMAC for Local District 5 with Ms. Santiago serving as the Media Arts Lead Teacher.
The instructional focus for DMAC LD5 is to have students create original media art works that demonstrate clarity of intent in conveying an idea, story or emotion.
