VanArts’ 2D/3D Character Animation program with students from Ashcroft Secondary SchoolVanArts welcomed a group of high school students this week from Ashcroft Secondary School in Ashcroft, British Columbia, who came to hear about the exciting post-secondary education that we offer for the media arts. For this special occasion, we invited one of their own alumni, Regan Greenwood, who came to VanArts’ 2D/3D Character Animation program after graduating from Ashcroft. Regan is now working as an Animator at Atomic Cartoons here in Vancouver, and she took a short break from production to share about her experience with our guest students.

Atomic Cartoons has hired a large number of graduates from VanArts in the past few months as they gear up on a new television series. Their training in ToonBoom’s Harmony software has been a huge asset, as the 2D Character Animation program at VanArts has become to go-to school for Harmony animators.

Check out this short video were Regan shares with us about her experience studying at VanArts and launching her career as an animator.
