Digital Arts Studio opening
Submitted By Meghan Moroney
The San Lorenzo Unified School DistrictÕs new digital arts studio will open its doors to students, staff, district officials, local employers and community members on Friday, February 21. This state-of-the-art $6 million production space is the new home of the Bay Area Digital Arts (BADA) program and was made possible through a Career Technical Education Facilities grant from the state, with matching funds provided by a voter-approved bond measure in 2008.
As part of the California Partnership Academies network, the BADA program at San Lorenzo High School strives to prepare its students for success in college, career and life after graduation. In addition to the core A-G curriculum, the BADA academy provides students with on-the-job training in media production and exposure to professional work sites via internships and job shadowing opportunities in the digital arts and entertainment fields.
The BADA studio is a fully functional media production space and includes editing suites, a TV studio, control room, narration room, production offices, and a 3,100 square foot sound stage. The studio will be available to regional businesses on a rental basis; local employers who wish to become further engaged with BADA program by guest speaking, offering internships, etc. will be offered reduced rental rates.
