The Youth Digital Arts Cyber School is our innovative online school that teaches students from 3rd grade through high school how to master the digital arts, at their own pace, with no previous experience required!
Our courses, Cyber Studios, and Cyber Jams include 2D & 3D Digital Drawing and Painting, Manga and Comics, 2D & 3D Animation, Digital Music, and how they all combine in 2D & 3D Video Game Design as an original art form.
Every young person from 3rd grade to high school can learn how these art forms are created and how they can make their own using free, easy-to-use, and yet professional level PC and Mac software.
The best time to introduce the digital arts is in 3rd grade so students can play with and explore the digital arts as they are learning and exploring other subjects. This ensures they are fluent in the digital arts by the time they reach high school and college. You can view testimonials by clicking the Testimonials link at the top of this page.
Students can fast forward, rewind and review each step, and support is built into every course. Each course includes quizzes after every chapter which is why homeschoolers and schools across the country use YDACS for their digital arts courses. Students also produce a digital portfolio of their course artwork and receive a YDACS Student Activity Report for every course they finish on their way to becoming a young digital artist.
Students can enroll in YDACS courses at any time. Courses are $155 and have a 60 day enrollment period from when students enroll.
To enroll create a YDACS userid by following the Step by Step Instructions in our Quick Enrollment Guide or Course Catalog.
We use free software for all of our courses but one. This software is used by digital art professionals around the world, including Hollywood.
Once students have downloaded our software at home they will have a Home Digital Art Studio where they can create as much digital art as they can imagine.
