At Max the Mutt, students learn fundamental drawing skills, 2D, 3D and classical animation, portfolio development and other important skills in demand at most U.S. and Canadian animation and gaming companies. The school has added a fourth year to an outstanding three-year diploma program in Animation Basics. Students who go on to the advanced diploma program further develop their skill base in their fourth year by working on a film project and acquiring work experience with animation companies in our cooperative work/study program. Throughout the years, the school has focused on keeping classes small, on attracting and maintaining an excellent teaching staff of working artists/animators and on helping students to achieve excellence in drawing/animation and in their presentation skills. Max the Mutt has a number of animation projects on the drawing boards that will create an exciting, rich learning environment for students and staff alike.

The school is located at 952 Queen St. West in the heart of Torontos Art and Animation district. Further information can be obtained at , e-mail: or tel.: (416) 703-6877.
