Media projects SBCE students have been involved in over the years
SBCE Play: Harold and the Murder Family
Santa Barbara Creative Education Youth wrote and acted out a play based on their studies of the interaction between Hawks and Crows. They integrated the study of human behavior and created this amazing "Westside Story" like play.
SBCE Music Video of Eric Lumiere's "GIANTS"
Eric Lumiere, a talented musician and a friend of SBCE, gave SBCE permission to make a music video for his inspiring song "GIANTS". Over months, students worked together to form this video through making storyboards, filming, and post-production video editing.
John Legend & Tay Da Prince: Love One Another
Featuring SBCE Students
Through connections to Joseph Natale, SBCE students were invited to be featured in John Legend's and nephew Tay Da Prince's "Love One Another". The song's message is very inspiring and represents some of SBCE's core values. This was a very unique and exclusive opportunity for our students to work with some very influential celebrities and producers.
Holiday Song "Time to Wake Up"
SBCE students collaborated together to write and perform a song for the holidays.
SBCE Active Poem "I am an Oak Tree"
SBCE Youth studied all about the Montecito Fires and Mudslides. They learned about the impacts on the land, sea, and people. They hiked and saw it firsthand.
They learned about the science of the effects of fire, particularly on the Oak Tree that can survive intense heat, yet survive. Then they used an analogy of loss and rebirth, wrote, and performed this beautiful poem, "I Am an Oak Tree"
