This Season, Give Meaningful Gifts

Make an Impact on all of the Creatives & Technologists in Your Life

Give Gifts that Last a Lifetime

Every year we give gifts to one another to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and special occasions. The gifts we give are often quickly used up or become redundant soon after they are received.

Learning new professional skills, exploring prestigious university campuses, and making new friends come with every Digital Media Academy Summer Program, but we wanted to do more year-round.

This summer, Digital Media Academy is providing meaningful gifts that make a difference for our students before and after camp.

Testimonials

Collaborative Environment

“This was our best experience at Digital Media Academy so far (6th year). My child got to experience what professional, collaborative filmmaking is like in the real-world in a collaborative environment. I loved how the learning wasn’t confined to a classroom or rigid curriculum, but instead, the instructors created and supported project-based learning experience. They (Brandon and Ben) contributed time, resources, and passion went above and beyond.”

-Daniel Edelman, Digital Media Academy Parent at Stanford, Filmmaking Academy

Where Artists are Cultivated

“Marquis and his assistant teachers were excellent! My son learned so much. In a short amount of time he made friends, was proud of what he accomplished, and I could tell that the staff kept a fun, creative, and supportive classroom environment. Marquis also took the time to publicly give each student a positive and inspirational comment, on the last day – showing that he really noticed each student as an individual “artist.”

-Julia Dean Massey, Digital Media Academy Parent at NYU, Audio & Music Production Academy

Industry-Level Software

“Wonderful week – I was really happy with everything and my daughter was very engaged the entire week. The course solidified her interest in animation and it’s wonderful to have her learning industry standards and working in professional programs from the a young age.”

-Janellen Meyer, Digital Media Academy Parent at UC San Diego, Illustration & Animation Academy

How are the new online courses different from “DMA Online” courses released a few years ago?

In 2019, we built these courses with professional curriculum developers and instructional designers for each specific age group. The courses available here are all new and completely different from the old DMA Online courses.

How were your online courses developed?

We started by asking what we could do to help students gain an understanding of technology education fundamentals. From there, we went through a curriculum development process that included selecting cutting edge topics; creating the courses; testing the content with students and educators; and working with educators to ensure the content works for different ages and knowledge levels.

How many hours of curriculum are included in one online course?

Courses provide up to 15 hours of instructional value, depending on a student’s experience, interest, and ability to grasp the material covered.

What ages are eligible to use the Online Learning Center?

Currently, there are customized Online Learning Centers for ages 7-9, 9-12, and 13-18+. Our 30+ courses have been designed for students from kindergarten through graduation.
