They say “the proof is in the pudding,” and it certainly is with CGMA. That proof is in the amazing artwork that their students create while in class with their mentors. Over the last 8-10 weeks, CGMA’s community of artists has been working hard to grow and develop their arsenal of skills. From professional artists looking to brush up on their technique, to budding artists starting the road to pursuing their dreams, to hobbyists looking to pick up a class on 3D printing for a personal project, their student body consists of an array of students who prove their talent and dedication on a daily basis.

The best part? The online platform allows CGMA to cater to a global network of artists that has helped build the camaraderie that their community is known for. Students from Canada are collaborating and swapping feedback with students in Angola or Mexico. It’s truly amazing.

CGMA offers a comprehensive variety of classes geared towards the VFX, Game and Film industries. Courses range from 2D Foundation & Design to the more advanced/technical options for Rigging and FX.

CGMA’s new “Installment Plans” payment option allows students to pay 50% up front and 50% at a later date, making the courses more accessible to anyone on a budget.

Installment Plan

Be sure to check out the art from CGMA’s Summer Term students and, while you’re at it, check out their course list for the upcoming Fall Term – classes start in 2 weeks! Courses are offered through 2D Academy, 3D Academy and CG Workshops.

The deadline for registration is Friday, October 14th 2016.
