Exceptional Teaching Staff
DMA’s instructors include highly respected educators, accomplished artists, and talented industry professionals who have a passion for teaching.
Our goal is to inspire students to reach their full potential, and prepare them for future creative or career opportunities. By learning from technology professionals who actually work in the subject areas that they teach, DMA’s Pro Series students acquire real-world experience and professional wisdom that helps guide them as they continue pursuing their goals.
DMA Learning Experience
DMA’s unique Pro Series learning experience is fueled by student and instructor passion for a subject. Hands-on, exploratory projects give DMA Pro Series students the opportunity to learn by doing and creating. Small individual successes and collaboration with other students evolve as the week progresses and then culminates with a final project.
Hands-on, project-based learning designed to:
Inspire and Motivate
A student’s inspiration is the compass that leads them to their passion. DMA’s immersive courses bring like-minded students together to motivate one another and to explore their passion through creation.
Personal confidence comes when students gain knowledge, skills and experience. DMA’s instructors empower students by acting as mentors and motivators, guiding students to create meaningful projects.
DMA courses are designed to encourage collaboration. We also like to provide students with guidance for pursuing their careers, and the opportunity to meet other professionals who work in their field.
Dedicated Computer & Workspace
While we encourage collaboration, we also believe students perform better when they don’t have to share a computer with someone else. That’s why each student has their own workspace and dedicated computer or tablet to use exclusively during the week.
DMA uses only the latest versions of top software and hardware from tech industry leaders such as Adobe®, Apple®, Microsoft®, Autodesk®, Google® and more.
