Title:

    Art School or Trade School?

Abstract:


    With formal programs in digital visual effects, games and animation coming into maturity, many faculty are rethinking the kind of educational experience they provide their students. Are they simply producing rotoscopers, modelers, and match-movers, or are they producing digital artists?

    An experienced group of educators from a variety of schools will discuss the merits of both the trade school and art school models and the ways in which they intersect while meeting the needs of students entering the job market.
