LAAFA is no longer accepting students into our 3-Year Entertainment Art Certificate Program. We are in the process of obtaining approval for new programs to start in 2024.
Entertainment artists combine draftsmanship, imagination and storytelling in creating the idea for inventive worlds in Animation, Live Action Film, TV, Gaming, Graphic Novels and Comics. Students in the Entertainment Art Certificate Program start with intensive foundational training and advance to traditional entertainment drawings and digital concept designs without taking the general education courses. Our professional instructors convey practical training techniques and industry advice to help guide students through the required skills needed to enter the challenging and competitive job market in the entertainment field. Our goal is to give students the ability to solve problems, articulate ideas and be versatile in delivering a wide range of assets to future employers. The Entertainment Art Certificate program provides the same educational track as the BFA program, but without the General Education requirements, making it a great option for those who already have a college degree, have completed their General Education at another institution, or who are not pursing a BFA Degree.
