AMY W.

ENTERTAINMENT DESIGN MAJOR

“I got into my dream school ArtCenter all thanks to everyone at the academy! I really went from no knowledge of what the entertainment industry has to offer to a very confident level of understanding that I want to go into this field. This is the only academy that has answered all my questions about what a professional digital artist can do in the art and design world today. I got a chance to hone my traditional skills and get familiar with digital tools in a way I was never able to in other art classes.”
