Industrial Arts Building #1 on the campus will have a new broadcast room, collaboration space, and instructional learning classroom. The new facility will provide state of the art learning spaces that will put students on a pathway to quintessential California media and entertainment careers and opportunities. The space will also host the CalArts Community Arts Partnership, a high performing program for college and career readiness that uses a project based learning model to help students develop technical proficiency, visual literacy, critical thinking and analysis of the arts through storytelling, screen writing and production courses.
