Animation can stir the imagination and change the way we view ourselves and the world around us. It can be funny, serious, poignant or completely absurd. Animation appeals to all ages and has the ability to transcend cultural differences. Bringing the pleasures and excitement of animation to the screen requires talented, dedicated and imaginative people.

At the School of Visual Arts, seasoned professionals teach students how to give life and motion to ideas and characters, in a program that blends the practical, the theoretical and the creative. Our students have gone on to careers as artists and directors for feature films, television, commercial production and independent film projects. Fine arts and stop-motion animation, digital composition, storyboarding and special effects makeup are some of the courses offered this semester.
