Workshops & Courses
We offer a variety of exciting art, digital and animation courses and workshops outside our diploma programs. We have courses that appeal to those from every background – from the complete beginner, to the occasional hobbyist, to the working professional. We pride ourselves on the quality of our offerings, and all of our courses are held to the same high standard as our diploma programs. This means you always get:
- A small class size
- Instructors who are industry professionals
- A supportive and fun environment
Workshops provide instruction within a specific area of study, such as cartooning, comic books, gaming, animation (classical, 2D and 3D), and life drawing. Our aim is to provide you with a fun and educational experience either building new skills or enhancing the ones you already have. Many of our workshops are targeted at beginners, hobbyists and those considering a career in a related field. Some are also suitable for those within arts or animation-based careers wishing to enhance their portfolios or develop their skill set in a particular area.
Our “Learn to Draw” Portfolio Development course is a great introduction to the basics of representational drawing. It provides you with the opportunity to develop your life drawing, basic composition, perspective, and free hand & constructive drawing skills, and is highly recommended to anyone planning to apply to an arts program.
Professional Development courses are designed for working industry professionals to help advance them in their careers.
Our intensive 6-week Certificate Program (offered during the summer) is for students who will be applying to art-based post-secondary programs to build their skills and ensure they are portfolio-ready. Successful completion of this certificate is considered equivalent to some of the requirements for applying to our Max the Mutt Diploma Programs.
