PNCA is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by building an inclusive educational environment that utilizes both onsite and remote learning options.


Animated Arts expands the notion of animation to embrace the hybrid moving image

The program encourages you to explore, combining fine art practices and digital technologies. At a time when the boundaries between live action, animation, painting, photography, illustration, and design are dissolving, our interdisciplinary fine art approach encourages you to reimagine ways to create frame-based work for multiple contexts.

In addition to learning principles of animation, you experiment with a variety of media, production methods, and narrative strategies to produce work for multiple and varied platforms. We teach the history of animated arts in the context of a broad engagement with both cinema and fine art.
