Through the California Department of Education Arts, Media, and Entertainment (AME) Initiative, Celsys provided Clip Studio Paint DEBUT (6-month Ver.), the standard in digital painting tools, to 2 million students and teachers in 1,600 high schools across California, free of charge.
AME is a non-profit organization established with the California Department of Education's assistance to support students who aspire to jobs in California's booming creative industry. The program provides students with the general knowledge, skills, and practical experience needed to pursue their desired profession in line with the Career Technical Education (CTE) model curriculum guidelines specific to each occupational field as defined by the California Department of Education. In 2019, the program was provided to approximately 230,000 students, the largest in the CTE field.
