Animation (BFA)

Growing up in the 2000s, I was obsessed with the shows on Cartoon Network. I soon began drawing and studying animation with the singular aspiration to just keep improving. Curiosity is the greatest asset of any artist and learning to take the time to absorb all aspects of life that inspire your vocation is essential. The array of courses offered in UArts' animation program are doing just that for me.
