Featured course

Knowing how to use Color and Light in your artworks is one of the best skills to learn as an artist because it will help you take your artworks from good to great.

Key Takeaways

“Be kind, and courteous to people and that will get you far!”

  • Ty’s parents didn’t want her to go to arts, but the art teachers at high school were connecting with her and her work so they said they will support her
  • Ty about getting to Disney Yellow Shoe studio. She applied through a conventional process because her mentor at the time encouraged her and said her art is good enough to apply. As she was going through the recruiting process and the rounds, it encouraged her even more.
  • Ty’s mentor at the university was the creative director of their design office, he showered her with compliments but made sure to tell her to work hard at the same time
