I have always been drawn to digital art. It started with 2d and 3d characters on the games I played and eventually moved on with adoptables and pet site art. I still spend a lot of time browsing through finished digital artworks in DA and wonder how people can do them. I spent some time each week trying to learn more about the tools of my trade which consist of Photoshop and Paint Tool SAI. I felt that I need to learn more and I considered applying in a digital arts school when my budget allowed me to.

I found out about First Academy of Computer Arts a year or two ago through Google while searching for a school that offered web design and PHP courses. I even went on to inquire through email about their courses back then but wasn’t able to actually attend their courses because I was still finishing school then. Last year, I learned that one of my classmates took a course there and she recommended it highly when I mentioned I was interested. I’m glad I stumbled upon their website again now that I am focusing my career to pet sites and adoptables. I find their list of courses interesting and I am highly interested with their multimedia arts offering since I would like to learn more about concept art.

Basically what I found is that they offer the following main courses:

  • 3D Arts that includes 3D Modeling & Design, Texturing & Rendering, 3D Animation and 3D Effects.
  • Multimedia Arts that tackles Concept Art (2D), Digital Animation and Basic Motion Graphics.
  • Print Media which contains Graphic Design, Graphic Illustrator, and Page Design & Layout.
  • Web Design which includes techniques in Photoshop, xHTML, CSS, and Dreamweaver.

They also offer several workshops in case you have a specific area you want to focus on. In case you are interested to find more information First Academy and their programs, you can check out their website, or call 898 27 24 to 26 and ask for Ms. Ciel C. Luy their Marketing Manager. The school is located 2F Saville Building, 8728 Paseo de Roxas corner Sen. Gil Puyat Ave. Makati City.
