Reports, Commentary & Creativity from Eastside Media Arts Students

Work in Progress

When I arrived at Eastside five years ago my classroom was a blank canvas, literally. There were six computers, two white boards and one bulletin board tucked away in a corner.

You get the idea by looking at the backdrop of this photo from a staff birthday party taken that first year.

My effort to personalize the space all started with a plant that is still on my desk thriving.

One by one I added a little something here and there.

Including original art from former students which I treasure.

A Wall of Winners recognizes students achievement and serves as motivation for others.

Now I am tackling the mess that is… THE CONTROL ROOM.


It was a mess when I got here. Years of stuff piled up on shelves and in boxes. Each year I have cleaned and purged. I have finally reached the point I am able to get in and get this room to the space I envision it for broadcast production. It started a couple weeks ago taking down shelves and priming them so I can cover up the dreary wood with something more aesthetically pleasing.


I am in the middle of the painting process. But somehow when you tackle a project like this, it seems to always look worse before it gets better.


With the three day weekend ahead, I hope to finish the painting so this room will be one step closer to completion. As we say in the business, stay tuned.

  1. It’s really good to know how much effort you are putting in cleaning your control room. I feel that having a good environment to work in improves the work itself.
