My Students

Our students are hard working, dedicated, and many want to be industry professionals. We want to ensure we have the very best program we can to support them. Our goal is to emulate the professional and higher education world as best we can. In addition, many of things that are learned in this area support their core class and other electives.

The recipe to success is built on good ingredients, and our students need good materials to make great work.

So we need your help to support these outstanding students.

My Project

In order to create better projects, we want our students to be able to hold objects in their hands like industry professionals to draw from. We are modeling this practice after how Disney artists create for their movies. So our goal is to create a reference library. If the student needs to draw a car they simply can go into the closet an pull out a model of the car to draw. If a student needs a pirate ship they simply hold a pirate ship in any direction or photograph it anyway they need to and they will have the materials on hand just like the professionals do.

Putting the right materials in the hands of our students could elevate their imaginations exponentially.

We have had many professionals begin their career at our fine school and credit the education they received as the foundation of their success. We want to continue to build on that tradition in our hope of continuing our students' success.

We have selected items that we believe will enable our students to create the best work possible. We are modeling our concept off of best practices in industry and higher learning. We are deeply grateful for your support!
