VANCOUVER INSTITUTE OF MEDIA ARTS (VANARTS)

Mission Statement:

The Vancouver Institute of Media Arts (VanArts) teaches the principles and techniques of animation with the purpose of motivating students to develop their talents, obtain skills needed for entry-level positions in the industry and perpetuate animation as a professional art form. VanArts offers intensive 1-year certificate programs in classical and 3D computer animation that start in September and February. Program participants produce a drawing portfolio and demo reel with several minutes of animation. Students can also elect a 2-year program that culminates in a diploma in commercial animation. Our part-time courses running throughout the year and our one month summer intensives are a fun and stimulating way to get a taste for animation and develop portfolio materials before applying to one of our full-time programs. Within this production community, VanArts maintains close ties with studios to ensure that our programs fulfill their needs. Locally, there are several established classical animation studios.

Programs Offered Include:
