2 Weeks Left to Register for CG Master Academy
18 April, 2018

The Spring 2018 registration period for CGMA, the leading destination for mentored art education, is coming to an end in just 2 weeks. CGMA has been providing an affordable and accessible route to interactive learning for students across all times zones for almost a decade. Professionals from acclaimed studios are amongst the growing CGMA student body with other students that may be early in their digital art careers. It’s amazing that students are not just learning from the best but are also rubbing shoulders (virtually speaking) with other professionals.

CGMA courses are being taken and mentored by artists all over the globe. With a classroom this diverse in background, skill, and experience, students have the opportunity to receive insightful one-on-one feedback from the industry’s lead artists. This is to ensure students get to practice concepts and workflows used at professional studios worldwide and develop the skills necessary to pursue the careers they love. While CGMA’s top mentees have gone on to produce some of the most iconic and innovative work the industry has seen, it’s common for some to come back each term for course offerings that reflect the latest techniques and practices shaping our ever-evolving computer graphics industry.

What follows are the courses and programs available today, with start dates the last week of April. Registration is ending soon with individual payment plans available for each course. Get in touch now to discuss registration, find out more, or make a portfolio review request – either via email at registration@cgmasteracademy.com or by phone (800) – 959 – 0316.
