"MEDIA ARTS" IS NOT AN OFFICIAL 

SUBJECT AREA IN US K12 SCHOOLS!

Media Arts Standards adopted in 30+ States!.... But,

not in state ed code

no specific courses

no credential

The National Association for Media Arts Education has launched a national initiative 

to fully establish quality, standards-based Media Arts Education (MAE)  

for all learners

in all learning venues - in school and out. 

“We envision a world where all learners have equitable access to the emergent power and potential of media arts.” 

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO SUPPORT MEDIA ARTS AS A SEPARATE SUBJECT AREA IN SCHOOLS!

SEE OUR PROPOSED NEW LEGISLATION FOR CA!


We live in a world increasingly infused with and interconnected through media arts. "Media arts", defined as technology-based creative production and design, and including the diverse forms of photo, video, sound, animation, graphics, web design, social media, multimedia journalism, 3D design, interactive and virtual design, is fundamental to how we experience, comprehend, and interact with our world.


It is imperative that these vital forms of production and design become standard, high-quality offerings in schools and other educational settings. These offerings are important for students to skillfully wield these forms for their own creative expression, academic development and career preparation, as well as to gain critical literacies in analyzing and negotiating multimedia experiences.
