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 speed and pace. 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 art form.
Every young person from 3rd grade to high school can learn how these art forms are made and how they can create their own using free, easy-to-use, and yet professional level PC and Mac software.
The best time to introduce the digital arts is beginning in 3rd grade so students can play with and explore the digital arts as they are learning and exploring other subjects. This ensures youth are fluent in the digital arts by the time they reach high school and college. You can view hundreds of testimonials by clicking the Testimonials link at the top of this page.
Our courses teach students how to create amazing digital art immediately, with no previous experience required! Students progress at their own pace within their enrollment period, whenever they want, wherever they want.
Students can fast forward, rewind, or review every step and support is built into every course. Each course also includes quizzes after each 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.
