Spring Show 2013 Top Industry Quotes
I believe Academy of Art University belongs in the top tier of all art schools throughout the world. The Animation & Visual Effects programs consistently graduate students who find employment in the visual effects and animation industry and the visual development curriculum develops quality illustrators and story artists. I will continue to be a supporter of this school, faculty and programs.
