Art students in Nebraska could receive the chance to learn from professionals working in Los Angeles.

The Calibraska Art Initiative is opening the virtual floodgates for their summer program.

Founding Director Erica Larsen-Dockray said she has recruited instructors who currently work for companies like Disney and Cartoon Network to teach animation.

She also added numerous other classes from acting and comedy to puppetry as a way to include multiple areas of art.

She believes the kids who participate in this program could revolutionize the industry.

"Those kids are so far along, they're so advanced. They know programs that we use out here in the industry and they're still in high school or middle school," said Larsen-Dockray. "Those kids are going to completely rewrite how we think about making things with these programs and how we approach it. Because, it's such a part of who they are and they've been doing it for so long."

Calibraska is giving away numerous scholarships to those who are interested.
