Hi everyone, I'm Austin. I am currently in high school and am enrolled in a great program called "Freestyle Academy". Here, my skills in both artistic and technical fields increased dramatically. I was able to learn how to utilize several different and versatile applications, and also gain valuable and unique experience. In Freestyle Academy, we were taught about subjects that were not commonly covered in other schools such as how to make our own websites or how to use Photoshop. At this unique program, the students all made unique projects based on an overall theme or topic. While completing these projects, other than loose boundaries, everyone was given free reign over what they did. These projects were the conceptual, narrative, documentary, and exploration projects. Each project was made to reach different objectives (which are described underneath). To complete these projects, we used programs such as Pro Tools 12 to compose music, Photoshop, Adobe Animate, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Dreamweaver. The images below will act as links to the projects that we have completed so far.

 

Throughout my time at Freestyle Academy, I have acquired several skills that are relevant to the current generation and have already helped me in areas that I would not have expected these skills to be present in. I have learned several 21st century skills from this course and am extremely glad that I was offered the opportunity to participate in this great academic institution. In addition to the technological skills I've obtained, Freestyle Academy has also prepared me for the work place with their policies of deadlines and collaboration and teamwork. Through Freestyle Academy, I have grown so much as an individual and am truly thankful for the opportunity to be a part of its community.
