Animation

Rowland Animation built its reputation by surpassing the expectations of industry recruiters. We have trained hundreds of people like you for rewarding careers. Our no nonsense, hands-on, team driven approach to this challenging art form broke new ground when it was first developed and continues to be a flagship program in the "school to career" movement.

If you choose to join our learning community, expect a creative, rigorous, intense experience similar to working at a professional animation studio. Expect to learn the basics of visual story telling and hand drawn cell or stop action animation before going on to use computers or specializing in any of the dozens of career paths available under the broad umbrella collectively known as the "animation industry."

Rowland Animation has one of only six "Virtual Classrooms" in the world where you can receive two-way state-of-the-art professional training direct from Warner Bros. Feature Animation Studio.

Contacts! Network! Visits, Lectures, and Criticism from the pros. Meet directors, storyboard artists, effects animators, layout artists, computer animators, character animators, and character designers from Disney, Warner Bros., DreamWorks, and many other studios.

Each year, Rowland opens its doors to the industry and the public to see the work put out by its students. We call it Open House. The students take over the animation rooms to decorate and create some of the most popular animated films of today. This year's Open House features movies like Quest for Camelot, Mad Monster Party, Mulan, and the female heroines and villains of DC Comics. Feel free to take a look at some pictures of some of the work that went into the Open House and its final product.
