Workshops & Camps

Workshops provide instruction within a specific area of study, such as cartooning, flash animation, or sculpture.
Our workshops are taught by the same industry professionals who teach our diploma programs; they offer you the opportunity to build new skills or enhance the ones you already have.

Our aim with Camps is to offer you a mini experience that will help hobbyists produce work, and will at the same time give those who may be considering a career the opportunity to decide if this is really the area they want to pursue.

“Learn To Draw” is a portfolio program that provides you with the opportunity  to make headway developing life drawing, perspective and still-life drawing skills! It can be taken, like the “Summer Camps,” in parts.

Max the Mutt now also offers an intensive 6 week  Certificate Program for students who will be applying to art based post-secondary programs. Successful completion of this program, provides some of the requirements for the application to Max the Mutt Diploma Programs.

Our summer programs are fun, quality experiences that give you the satisfaction of learning skills you can use long after the summer ends!
