The one year foundation in fine arts program was born out of the expertise and educational innovations at the heart of ArtFX school’s values. It aims to bridge the artistic and technical skills that students have at the end of high school with the expectations for the first year of an artistic program at a higher educational organization. Students will learn the basics of fine arts, while discovering through experimentation, the trades of 2D and 3D animation movies, vfx and video games. Workshops, where students put into practice all the techniques that they learn, are the basis of this program. The objectives of this foundation year: to reveal students’ artistic talents, to develop their creativity, to provide them with effective teamwork methods, to help them build an artistic portfolio.
