The list for participants is up.

Please send me a list in notes of people you would like to be the santa of, at least three, please.

If you have any questions or need to drop out please feel free to note me.

:star:  What is a Secret Santa ?:star:

The tradition of Secret Santa is a gift exchange between two persons in which the person receiving the gift doesn't know who the giver is going to be. Seems like a lot of fun, doesn't it? :D ALSO since DeviantArt is an artistic web community, we decided to make an art Santa. We have run the Future Disney Artists Secret Santa every year for the last four years and hope to have an awesome one this year as well.

The gift will be a piece of art made by yourself, or a fanfiction for example, that you will do for your recipient and that you will post here on your account :)

There is no physical gift giving everything. Everything is on DA.

:star: How will it work?:star:

At the bottom of the journal is a questionnaire.

Please copy the questions and send your answers IN A NOTE titled "Secret Santa Questionnaire"  to inidis. DO NOT SEND YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE TO THE GROUP!
As the admins may participate and they'll have access to the group notes.  

You'll have until the 11th of November to send your questionnaire and apply to the Secret Santa.
Between the 11th and the 15th of November, I will add a journal to my STASH with everyone's answers assigned a number (with the name removed, of course).  I will note each participant the link to the journal and participants will then reply with their first 5 choices. Assignments will be made (by note) on a first-come, first-serve basis.  When a number is assigned, it will be removed from the journal.  This will be explained in detail in the assignment note.

:star: Who may participate?:star:

Participation is open to any member/watcher of FutureDisneyArtists or Art-Tutoring-Program
We have absolutely no requirements on skill level or main artistic medium.  Everyone is welcome to participate. :iconreindeerla:

:star: Rules and due dates:star:

:bulletgreen: You'll have until the 11th of November to send your questionnaire and apply to the Secret Santa.

:bulletred: The due date to send your final gift is the 15th of January. Then from the 15th to the 30th of January, we will contact swing Santas to complete missing gifts, we will allow some delays depending on the circumstances but you must contact us.
When your gift is finished, post the deviation to your gallery and the group and send both your recipient and me (Inidis) a note with the thumb or a link to it.

:bulletgreen: Your gift must adhere to normal group rules: there must be a canon Disney character, place, or thing present. All work must be your own. No screenshots, Disney promotional photographs, or any official Disney art may be used.

:bulletred: Medias allowed are: traditional art, digital art, handcrafts, sculpture, and literature MADE ESPECIALLY FOR THE EVENT, you can't use an old deviation of yours, it's not fair, the gift has to be personal and corresponding to your recipient's wishlist

:bulletgreen: Admins reserve the right to reject a gift. We will not ever reject a gift based on skill level, but if it's clear the deviation only took 15 minutes or none effort was put in it, or you took one of your old deviations, we'll refuse it and reassign a Swing Santa to your recipient.

:bulletred: As a recipient, if you feel that you have been given an inappropriate gift please note me personally. Remember skill level will not be taken into consideration - if it is clear your Santa put thought and effort into their gift it will be accepted by the group. If the gift is ultimately rejected by the group you will be assigned to one of our swings.

:bulletgreen: While December 25th is the best time to submit your gift, you can submit any time in December if you wish.

:star: What happens if someone doesn't complete their gift ?:star:

:bulletred: If you pull out of Secret Santas before you have received your gift, no harm done. Your Santa will have the choice of still completing your gift or being reassigned to a swing position.

:bulletgreen: If you pull out of Secret Santas after having received your gift but before the 15th of January (which allows time for the Santa to be reassigned to a swing), you will go onto the "Coal List" and not be allowed to participate in future events.

:bulletred: If by the 20th of January you have not completed your gift but have received yours, the group will ask the artist that made your gift to remove credit to you. You will end up on the "Coal list" so if you think you are not going to be done in time tell us.

:bulletgreen: For recipients, if your Santa has pulled out of the project or if you haven't received your gift by the 20th of January, you'll be reassigned to a Swing Santa, who will make you a gift that you will hopefully receive by the 31st of January

:bulletred: So in short, if you think that for any reason you are going to be too busy December and January then don't enter this event.

:star: The Questionnaire :star:

1. Favorite Disney/Pixar/Marvel Movies: (list as many as you like)

2. Favorite Disney/Pixar Characters: (list as many as you like)

3. Favorite Disney/Pixar Miscellanea (Places, Games, Shows, Music, comics,etc.): (list as many as you like)

4. My Idea of a Perfect Gift: (it may give some ideas to your Santa to make you a gift you'll sure like)

5. Art Mediums I prefer to receive: (digital/traditional/litterature/sculpture/handcraft)

6. Other things I'd like to share with my Santa: (if you want your Santa to know you better or if there's something not related to Disney that you like, for example, you like DreamWorks or harry potter and you'd like a crossover with a Disney character)

7. I can/can't be a Swing Santa if someone should not complete their gift. (It means if someone leaves the project, you'll be asked to make a present for the recipient they had been assigned to)

Remember to send your note to inidis! Do not leave your questionnaire in a comment either! For it wouldn't be secret anymore ;p

Happy holidays!!!

Welcome to FDA


Hello and welcome to future Disney artists, my name is Invidia-S the co-founder of this group and along with CherishTree one of the people here to help you. while we have a gallery for Disney style artworks we also have an art tutoring programing in our affiliate group Art-Tutoring-Program (it got too cluttered here) organised by the group between our members. The current 2014 list of students and tutors can be found here:
Tutors-Students List 2015- 2016Here's the list of our tutors and students for 2015.
We have removed all previous people from last year from the list so if you would like to continue please comment on this journal or note the group and we will re-add you.
Tutors please inform us of skills you are willing to teach in this (:bulletpurple: Traditional    :bulletred: Digital   :bulletblue: Animation    :bulletgreen: 3D modelling) format
Once registered with the group students are free to either contact a tutor or ask the group to help them find a tutor. Keep in mind that you should notify the group if you find a tutor. If you're a little shy you can ask Invidias or CherishTree to ask the tutor for you. I wish you all luck, may your talent blossom.

I now turn you over to our founder glimpen for the rest of the introductory post:


Hope you know how to read!
FAQs///How to join?/// Characters we accept /// Rules

Hello/Howdy/Hola/Bonjour/Willkommen! :wave:

Hello again deviants!!
This club is not a normal club!!

We are not just watchers, members, admins and visitor....we are supporters, critiques and especially friends. The one thing that makes us different is that we encourage improvement and congratulate it!!!

This club is not a gallery that you submit your newest artwork in, it is a learning environment to grow in.

We have a partnership program that is not an obligation for all the members!
Though it is the main focus of the group.
You have four options is this club:

:bulletred: Be someone's tutor.
:bulletred: Be someone's student.
:bulletred: Have a tutor and a student
:bulletred: Be a gallery contributor member (not in a partnership)
(Or you know you could help us here as an admin.)


As a group we have a job, an oath if you may. When we clicked "join" we accepted the responsibility of possibly being a tutor to other deviants that request useful critique, support or even help. Every deviant accepted is a deviant we watch grow and develop as a Disney artist. To every deviant, that wishes help, a tutor is selected...and that wishes to help a student!

You maybe thinking..."What Deviant Disney school?"
In a way we are, depends on what a school means to you. If a school means fun and friends... yes!! :dance: Or if it means study and improvement... YES! :work: Or if you simply want to help someone to get better in the drawings, sketches, colorings ( Colouring , sorry Glimpen, I’m Australian and just needed to say that) or even ideas... yes!!!:writersblock:

We simply seek the improvement of ALL artists that seek improvement. We need all the help we can get!!!! :D:D:D
If you want to improve your art with useful critique or want to help someone by giving critique!!!
You came to the right place!!!!!

:woohoo:This is the DD Academy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:woohoo: The Disney Deviants Club!>

Why are we named Future Disney Deviants????
Because when you join you are one step closer to become a Disney Artists* (In the sense that you improve as an artist though I also find Disney related job opportunities.) !!!!

Partnership Interested Members!
The program has started!

New gallery folders* will be created for each group (tutor/student)!
Once you receive that, every deviation you upload has to contain a link to the club and to your tutor! It is also very important that to put in your deviation your tutor’s icon or send a link to them, they need to be able to see the artwork to offer critique! Also tell us you have a tutor so we can make the folder for you.

Please note this…
You will improve here. There will be a time that your tutor won’t be able to help you anymore. Your need another type of help. Please send a note to the club that contains this points:
:bulletblue:are you a student or a tutor?
:bulletblue:who was your tutor/student?
:bulletblue:do you improve what you were looking for?
:bulletblue: what kind of help do you seek now?
:bulletblue: is there a specific area that you would like to improve?
After you send the note, we will remove the previous student/tutor folder and you can look for a new one.
do not forget to tell your tutor/student! A “thank you” note never hurts!

Your tutor is not helping you??
Don’t worry! Sometimes, someone is not the correct tutor. Maybe you didn't fully relate or you both share a very different point of view, please send the club a note were you say who is your tutor, why he did not helped you and what kind of help you need. We will communicate that to your tutor and you can search for a new one.
Do not be offensive to your tutor!
If you broke the rules and you wish another tutor… we will deny it! please read the Rules

Remember that this group and Art-Tutoring-Program have the same admins we are in essence the same group so what is write here goes for there.

You don't have Aladdin folder? 
inidis Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2016
I'm slowly removing all the movie folders. It was getting to hard to find particular movies and people were often just posting randomly anyway.
