  NOTE: Many software programs and apps have the ability to shape or create our vision. After the Pandemic, students and teachers have changed from using one particular program but support our work with many. We continue to update this list. ALL students have access to Adobe Creative Cloud. Specifically, we will be using Illustrator, Photoshop, Animate, Premiere and more. Current students will be able to download their Creative Cloud software and files to a home computer using the same login from the classroom. Please note, software always runs faster when you install it upon your local machine hard drive. Software programs marked with a $ indicating a paid app we may decide to purchase in the future.
