In response to growing demand from industry, Game Art and Design and Visual Effects have been added to broaden the mix of accredited diploma programs offered at Vancouver Institute of Media Arts. The addition of Game Art & Design in 2003 and now Visual FX allows our students the ability to focus their training in more specific areas of the industry says Alan Phillips, President of VanArts.
Under the direction of Academy-Award winning animator Lee Mishkin, VanArts started with 2D animation in 1996. Building upon this solid foundational study of the art form, 3D animation was added just two years later. Each program is team taught by industry professionals who are highly dedicated to their field of expertise.
