A Message from our Directors

Re: Fall Semester 2020

After careful consideration, my Co-Director Tina Seemann and I have made the decision that Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art & Design will go online for our fall semester. We have made this decision because the health and welfare of everyone in our community is of paramount importance to us.

Our staff will be working hard over the summer to make this transition in a way that maintains the quality and integrity of our educational experience. We strongly believe that, working with our students, instructors and staff, we can make the online experience a positive one for everyone.

We will not sacrifice the excellence of our programming or our commitment to personal, one-on-one attention from our instructors to all students. Courses that cannot effectively be adapted to an online format will not take place until we can safely reopen.

We have already successfully transitioned our workshops and camps to the online environment, and will continue offering these to our community throughout the summer and into the fall. Our diploma programs will resume, as usual, the week of September 14, 2020.

All the best, and stay safe,
