SUMMER MEDIA ARTS WORKSHOP
A Summer Work-Based Opportunity for Students in SFUSD CTE Programs

This will not be a classroom.

This is not a class that will teach students how to use Photoshop or how to make a video.

It's an opportunity for students who have already learned those skills to apply what they've learned in a fast-paced production environment.

At the end of two weeks, students in each of the Summer Media Arts Workshops will produce:

  • 3-Page Website
  • Photoshop Banners & Graphics
  • Flash Animations (optional)
  • Two Public Service Announcement Video Commercials

Henry Machtay earned an MFA from the University of Southern California Film School. He worked as a filmmaker, writer, editor, desktop publisher, and finally as a web designer/producer before a mid-life series of circumstances dropped him into a teaching career.

His first day in a classroom was September 11, 2001, as a substitute covering for a computer teacher at Galileo. That computer teacher never returned. Mr. Machtay never left, and two years later he became a credentialed teacher planning the launch of the Academy of Information Technology at Galileo. In 2008, Media Arts split off and became its own pathway.

Mr. Machtay has credentials in Art and in Career-Tech Ed (Arts & Media). He is an Adobe Lead Educator, Adobe Photoshop Certified, has been an IISME Fellow, wrote the first UC-accepted curriculum for web design as an art class as well as contributing to the UCCI curriculum "Depth of Field," a 12th grade class combining Media Arts and English Literature. His curriculum for "POV: Video Production for Persuasive Communication" was recently accepted by UC A-G as an Art class and also a Career-Tech Ed class.
