    I took most of the classes last term and I can strongly recommend this academy!
    You get the best instruction you can possibly get, and for this price it is really unbelievable. Thanks for the good times Kevin, and the other instructors!

    I'll have time for two workshops before I leave LA, awesome!

    I'd like to add another vote of praise for this school. I took both Figure Drawing classes and the Introduction to Character Design course, plus nearly every workshop - and all exceeded my high expectations. The amount of practical information that's handed out is staggering - I'm still going through all my notes!

    To Kevin and the workshop guest instructors, it was a delight learning under you. Thanks for everything. Best of luck with the upcoming quarter.

    Aloha there, man I'd so love to join all of those classes ... unfortunately, there's just one minor problem: I live in Belgium and therefore can't get those classes. Wish I could chase my dream as well just like the guy from the post in front of me ... Epias, if you're reading this, I recently heard you've moved to America, enjoy the atmospere there man

    Anyway, if there's anyway I could possibly get to take a look somedays there in America (or maybe here in Belgium if/when you guys decide to hit Europe/Belgium, I won't doubt for sure

    And man, great art here love the Ghost Rider-art

    Hi, I've been reading the forums for a few days now looking for a school to go to that's affordable and also able to help me get a job in the concept art industry.

    For sure, I will be attending some drawing/painting classes at my community college to brush up on some skills. But I wanted to know if attending Concept Design Academy will help me get a job in the future.

    Hi Hnoun07,

    Thanks for your interest

    We are a private art school that provide an "ala Cart" class system that allows the students to take the classes with the instructors they want.

    This is often ideal for full-time students to supplement their education or for working professionals to improve their skills after working hours.

    All of our instructors are either Art Director, Lead Artist, or Senior Concept Artist level professionals from various film and game studios. They will be able to provide you with good foundation skill training and feedback on what to prepare in your break-in portfolio.

    Also, the class is a great place to meet other professionals and establish new connections. Our student base is often a mix of both students and professionals from various part of the entertainment industry.

    The rest is up to your hard work to ensure yourself the job. Your own dedication will help you achieve that.

    This is true with any school you go since a degree does not count much in our field. Skill, team work and hands-on experience are far more important.

    Hope this will help you get a better feel for our school and please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,
    Kevin Chen

    Hello Kevin,

    I just learned about this school It's very exciting to know what you have been doing. Is there any chance you are thinking of doing some online classes?
    That would be great! I live in the Philippines and I have been saving for what seems like eternity to go to California and go to LAAFA. Well, because I thought you still teach there I have saved a lot for tuition but not for housing, living, airfare etc. It would make the biggest difference in the world if you offered that kind of service
    I hope you at least think about it;P

    Or if I'm lucky I can go there next year!

    Hi Jonas,

    Great to hear from you~!!

    I saw some of your recent post with the feedback notes, Carlo will be really proud

    We actually just back from a trip to Czech republic and had a great time checking out Mucha's Slav Epic paintings. If you haven't seen it, definitely make the trip and check it out, it is simply amazing and worth the trip.

    We were able to find the paintings at Moravsky Krumlov, near the city of Brno.

    Hopefully we can meet up again either in US or in Belgium sometime in the near future.

    Hope all is well and keep in touch~!!

    I took Jay's story boarding classes while I was in college studying animation. He's an awesome guy, and really knows his stuff. Wish I had time to learn from him again. I would recommend anyone who is interested in studying storyboards to take a class from him.

    Nice work on this thread. I am interested in the program and want to take classes, but I'll need to figure a way to relocate to LA, and I'll need a much better job than just simply working an average day job to afford rent/living/tuition. Hopefully I will see you in the not so distant future. =)
