Introduction to Digital Arts

Providing flexible education. It was helpful to have the optional offered courses. I would have liked to attend more of them, but my schedule wouldn't allow it. So if they were mandatory, I don't know that I would have been able to sign up for this. But when I was able to make it they were incredibly interesting and helpful, and it was nice to interact with other programs. I also liked the VANAS board, because it allows you to see what other courses cover and the work out there.

275

2D Animation Diploma

VANAS has organized a good schedule for everyone, and it’s really nice that we have the extra support classes, especially with adobe animate since I am fairly new to using the program, it helps me feel more comfortable being able to attend these Wednesday sessions, so I am hoping this continues with our next teacher.

VANAS is very good at teaching the principles of animation which we went over this semester. Also, I'd say that VANAS is really good at making a comfortable environment to learn animation and enter the industry at a good pace. Frequently, I found myself not worrying or ever having to stress myself for a deadline or assignment. The pace for this semester was fairly relaxed. That might be due to my familiarity with the subject matter. Although, I do wish we were given a little bit more to do in the week because I prefer to work under a bit of pressure. I find it helps me not to procrastinate and gives a sense of what to expect in the working world with regard to deadlines.

VANAS is excellent at giving us relevant course work and simulating the studio work flow for students with a busy schedule and/or remote students. I think the conference is excellent and filled with extremely useful, relevant information and people to meet. I took advantage of Annex Pro's device demoing and discovered how much I love the Wacom Cintiq 24 Pro, and am now seriously considering purchasing one. Connecting us with companies and instructors with experience is great. My experience has been really fun and enlightening, and everyone is really nice. I've been speaking highly of VANAS to a bunch of other artists I know. I also love how the website specifies what kind of students would be most appropriate for which course or diploma, and giving us a good idea of what the course work and experience would be like. I was extremely excited about VANAS before my term started, and I think so far I've experienced a really great payoff. I'm still excited. I truly appreciate VANAS's intent to implement feedback and always seems open to more improvements. I enjoy the flexibility that VANAS allows. I think so far for the most part, the staff/instructors have been really nice and accommodating. The instructors seem really nurturing.
