Seriously well done, one of the most fun experiences I've had. I was able to be creative and expressive without any pressure of doing something specific. It was challenging at a few times, but I learned so much! Want to do this work in my future.
8th Grade - Intro to DMAC Workshop
The class was very informative and interesting. I had a lot of fun learning not only what was included in the class but also some tips and tricks for how to use a computer better. I really enjoyed this class, and would highly recommend to others.
