She was once a student. Now she's grown to become indispensable as an instructor here at the Academy. Maia Gross is another of our brilliant artists that creates a positive affect upon our community with every class she conducts. Maia is the result of our practice of developing our teachers from our student body. She's as outstanding an instructor in Character Design and Visual Development as she is a vibrant individual and a visionary. She nurtures and inspires a highly talented group of future superstars and we're fortunate to have someone as dedicated and devoted to our school as she is.
Below is a small sample of what Maia comes up with as assignments from when she was a student to class demonstrations as an instructor. Presented in no particular order and accumulated from the many times she's been featured on the Academy's blog.
