Mackenzie is one of our Student National Fellows who is currently enrolled at Drexel University studying animation and visual effects. She is great about sharing insights she is learning along the way such as getting into the habit of drawing everyday to encourage your creativity.
“One of my assignments for a class is to draw 7 different objects for 7 days. Last week we had to draw 7 cats and this week was 7 trees. The drawings should take no longer than 10 minutes and are just simple pieces, the goal is simply to get you into the habit of drawing everyday. I recommend this to everyone as it helps encourage your imagination and gets you into a creative mood.”
Judah just completed DDP101 and posted some outstanding comments and works:
“I’ve finished DDP101. I enjoyed this course very much. I especially enjoyed seeing how each artist had their own unique style and different methods for creating their artwork. It was extremely educational for me as an artist to learn from other artists and try different techniques. Overall, I was very pleased with this course and I feel that it has helped me further establish my own style. Thank you YDACS!“

Paige just completed DPP101 and her comments and excellent works are below:
“It was an interesting class, because though I had experienced gimp in the past, I didn’t know the complexity it could achieve, nor the selection of filters ect to choose from. I’m sure that I will use this program more in the future.”

Evelyn one of our 3DDRW101 students rocked the course getting 100% on all of her quizzes but 1, posting 4 excellent original works, and leaving great comments.
“I’ve finished 3DDRW101! This was a challenging course, but ultimately I feel like I learned so many new techniques. 3D in general is an exciting topic, and it was very fun to develop the basic skills (which I will expand upon more and more as I go).
The greatest part about this experience was the support. I was having many difficulties at the beginning of the course, but the instructors were always willing to spend a lot of time and effort to help fix the problem both for me and the other students. Thank you so much! I will continue to make creative artwork with the help of these new skills.

Bradley is one of our amazing 3rd graders who just completed DPP101 and posted the 4 excellent highly original works along with their description below. We love it when 3rd graders use lots of amazing skills and techniques such as pinch, ripple, illusion, pepper, supernova, hidden planet, fuzzy select, and especially cubism! Bradley says:
“I’ve finished my quizzes and posted 4 works. I really enjoy photography, so this class taught me how to edit them. I learned about filters, artistic, noise, light and shadow, a lot from the dock, and I enjoyed the class. The quizzes were hard for me, but I wrote down the information for the quiz. It was fun.”
