This class’ objective is to teach junior high and high school students how to start a business, create a brand around that business—whether a real one or a mock one—and how to promote that business through Internet and traditional media, teaching them the foundational skills of marketing. We’ll have a few main goals in mind as we move through this course. We will:
- Provide hands-on opportunities of exploration so the students can discover their passions, purpose, and callings in life and career/business;
- Talk about becoming a light in a dark world, communicating the Gospel directly or indirectly through the media arts;
- Learn how to discover excellence in twenty-first century media arts;
- Learn, discover, and create our own artistic logo, business card, multimedia portfolio presentation, video/film, and website, all based on a real business endeavor or a mock one.
Students will need a computer and software capable of design and image manipulation. Options, both free and paid, will be given in one of the course lessons.
