ABOUT UA ACADEMY

The Idea

UA is on a mission to provide urban communities with competitive gaming and computer graphics technology skills. The formation of UA academy is partly inspired by a book, "Pedagogy of the Oppressed. By, Paulo Freire. This book inspired me to become a teacher of the oppressed. The book made me Jamaia Smith, come to realize that growing up with the racial oppression of the United States makes me uniquely qualified to lift other oppressed people. Now, after 20 years of professional digital media production.  Jamaia Smith, a Hartford, CT native initiated UA Academy to teach art and computer graphics technology with hopes to empower.
Urban Arts?

Urban arts is a term that I created to define the arts we find most common in urban communities. The creative expression of urban people. I find value in teaching and advancing urban creations such as competitive gaming and Hip-hop media.  Being a computer graphics scientist I can see UA pioneering an urban renaissance by producing impactful urban art.
