Celebrating 20 years of excellence
In 1999, experienced artists Gerard Sternik and Vince Peets founded Animation Portfolio Workshop as a place for aspiring animation students to learn drawing fundamentals. Each successive year confirmed our core belief – a strong foundation in drawing leads to a strong animation portfolio and ultimately prepares students for the rigours of top post-secondary animation programs and beyond. Since our first group of students in 1999, hundreds of young artists from all over the world have received foundational training in drawing at APW – and the tradition continues.
“The rest of the world would do well to recognize the importance of this school.”
