Marietta Semardjyan's latest work

An emerging talent in our Teen Program, Marietta Semardjyan is creating some very nice art through her most recent Visual Development assignments. Focusing on tonal relationships and texture, she came up with these thematic designs. They both exhibit strong fundamental rendering skills and confidence in her application of the medium.

At only 15 years of age, Marietta is yet another promising Academy student whose creative endeavors we can look forward to seeing more of in the future.

Kevin Smith's Characters

Another standout student we've had with us recently is Kevin Smith. Like many of our students both past and present, Kevin is actually a professional in the animation industry who attends the Academy to further develop his skills in areas that he doesn't necessarily work in as far as his job goes. In this case, it's his character design skills.

Kevin is a strong artist who's gotten even better as a result of his time with us. Take a look at some of the work he's done as part of his class assignment in Character Design 1. Clicking on the image will give you a better view.

Regardless as to whether you're at a professional level or not, The Animation Academy can help you build a solid foundation that will pay off for you in many areas of your art. If you already have previous art training or are working in the business, we can help you develop to an even higher level of excellence.

We conduct face to face classes in Burbank and can arrange for online training as well. Contact the school and we'll be happy to discuss your particular art education needs.
