New Extended 38 week Session!

We are now offering an extended nine month session.
That's 38 six hour classes bringing the total to 228 instructional hours.
We still offer classes one day a week with the same excellent student-to-teacher ratio that APW students have come to enjoy.

The new Spring Session will start on Saturday, May 1, 2010, with the final class of the session falling on Saturday, March 10 2011. Classes will run from 11am to 6pm.

We've made the change to our program thanks to suggestions from many of our graduate students. The aim is to have the end of the program coincide with the submission deadline for animation portfolios for Sheridan College and Seneca Animation Arts Centre.

Registration for the 2010 Spring Session has begun so now's the time to register!

Look forward to seeing you there!
