Yana Koldashova


student bio

Yana Koldashova came to Denver from Moscow, Russia, to unite with her family, and find a new family in her classmates and instructors at DAC. Her passion for Animation and Arts started with the present she gave to her new-born niece 7 years ago: a mural of Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

This ignited her desire to learn how to re-create the classics and use current technological advances to produce 3D films. Over the course of 5 years in the DAC, she realized her potential, expended her skills and is now ready to embark on her next journey as a modeler in films, get a MFA, and teach future students.
