“We want to thank you and your team for such a well-organized expo! We had good conversations with parents and students. Mark’s presentations were also well attended and hopefully intrigue some kids to be future animators! VanArts benefits from being part of the DMA Youth Expo and we like to continue building stronger relationship with your team and your students. Let’s make it a great experience for them!”


“I was very impressed with the expo. I can’t imagine how much behind the scenes work went into this, and I was impressed with the professionalism and enthusiasm of the students, staff, and everyone involved. Big thank you to you all, and I just love how this is really bringing exposure to this industry to youth. I always wish I had more of this information when I was younger, so in my books you guys are doing everything right!”
