All Texas Youth Creators Awards participants need a place for creating their works of art.  If you have room in your library it is a great idea to create a studio for young artists.  Most students in Texas schools can't afford their home studio, as a fully equipped computer with accessories and a large screen can cost well over $3000.

A good studio will have all of the software and hardware for all of the following uses:

  • creating movies with special effects and soundtracks
  • recording music with live instruments as well as sound loops and virtual instruments
  • Creating animation movies
  • Processing digital photographs

For some general information see these articles:

Both Windows and Macintosh computers have options for all of these uses. Some freeware is available, but professionals use the name brands.
