Hear from Our Teaching Artists
I’ve been a Steeltown teaching artist for eight years. I’ve been so impressed by the growth and development of students in our Youth & Media program.
I’m hopeful for the next generation of up and coming filmmakers. I’ve seen the enthusiasm, work ethic, creativity and desire to collaborate that is necessary to be successful in the film and television industry.Kris Veenis
SCALE @ WORK
Our curriculum, SCALE,

Our teaching artists work alongside educators to supplement their program and teaching methods.
From English classes to after-school programs, Steeltown Film Academies make sure that every student gets a chance to turn the technology in their pocket into a tool for the future.
