C4 Media Arts & Digital Literacy Programs
C4 is the name of our in-house, After School Media Arts & Digital Literacy program offered to students in 3rd-12th grade here at the Center for Creative Education.
Our C4 Program represents the “21st Century Skills” essential to prepare students for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st Century.
The 4C’s are:
– Critical thinking.
C4 supports the academic, social and creative growth of students by providing year round project-based learning and work-study opportunities in graphic arts, digital cinema, web design, and app development. The collaborative project based curriculum promotes healthy peer interactions, problem solving and positive self-expression. Decades of studies have shown after school arts programs significantly reduce instances of youth violence and social-emotional problems along with promoting engagement in school and academic success. C4 provides students the skills and experiences needed to succeed in our technology-driven information economy. Students gain digital media production competencies through creative and socially relevant visual storytelling projects.
