Hello Registration is now open for CGMA’s Winter 2022 Term. What better way to usher in a new year than growing your artistic skills under the guidance of the best professionals in the entertainment design industry?
This year, CGMA has some 2022 resolutions of its own. CGMA was built on the goal of making entertainment art education affordable, accessible, and relevant. We are happy to announce the Winter 2022 Term will include three new features, one for each commitment.

Take note that it has a 3% processing fee, but will provide you with more financial flexibility. Learn more about this payment plan on our site.

CGMA is pleased to announce the arrival of subtitles in course videos. Starting Winter 2022, you will be able to watch course lectures with the option of subtitles in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. And more languages will be added throughout the year! Subtitles will not only improve the existing students’ experience, but it will also open the doors for non-English-speaking and non-hearing artists.
