Media Arts at Darlington

Darlington School

Media Arts

Our students have the opportunity to expand their graphic communication skills starting in the middle grades, where they learn Adobe Creative Suite Software (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator) and photography skills. Middle school students also have the ability to contribute to Darlington’s one-school yearbook. With a graphic design program that begins in sixth grade, our young journalists are well-prepared to use the software necessary to create student publications.

At the Upper School, the media arts become even more of a curricular focus with courses like The Newsroom, Photographics and Advanced Media: Yearbook. In these classes, students continue using the Adobe Creative Suite software in addition to learning WordPress. Units in broadcast journalism, reporting, photojournalism, First Amendment implications and graphic design are embedded in the coursework, exposing students to a variety of contexts in media arts. Students in these classes contribute to the student-produced publications, The Darlingtonian online news, Jabberwokk yearbook and Inkslinger literary magazine.
