Digital art is an innovative path that needs to be explored further: an artistic discipline providing the creativity and inspiration needed by the younger generations who seek to combine their place in the labor market and society with their high interest and motivation for new technologies.
After finishing this course, youth workers will be able to sympathize with the youth, reinforce their motivation, and self-esteem, and help them become more capable of entering the labor market and taking an active role in society.
