Character animation is the art of creating not only motion but also emotion over time.

Whether working with paper, pixels or puppets, as an Animation major at Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD), you will become skilled at shaping compelling frame-by-frame performances that inspire viewers to accept that the characters on screen are alive with genuine thoughts and sincere emotions.


LCAD’s BFA program in Animation is dedicated to ensuring that you become an exceptional storyteller who understands the entire process of filmmaking from script to screen. You will develop your abilities in traditional animation with classic artistic skills and then enhance that knowledge with fluency in the latest digital tools.
