PIXAR Animation Studios today made a major announcement. They will be setting up a studio right here in downtown Vancouver coming up this fall, a first for the renowned company.

This news is certain to give a major boost to the local animation community, and we’re especially excited here at VanArts due to our existing working relationship with PIXAR…

Pixar animators Andrew Gordon and Mike Venturini already offer regular web-chats directly from their California studio to VanArts to evaluate our 3D Animation students’ work.  

VanArts is also hosting a Masterclass with Andrew Gordon and story artist Matthew Luhn in Montreal, on June 13th and 14th.
