Our Response


Since we hold our classes in Toronto, Canada we refer to Toronto Public Health for the latest information. Please continue to check back regularly for updates as circumstances evolve.

Toronto Public Health informs our continuing response to the COVID-19 pandemic for students/parents of students planning on attending sessions of the Animation Portfolio Workshop.  Please note: all in-person sessions have been moved to 2021/22.  Until then all APW sessions are online.


APW Online

Learn more about this new APW offering

With the help of the entire APW Team, we have successfully created and launched APW Online. We are proud to offer our students the closest possible experience to attending classes in person. APW Online delivers our full comprehensive program with our carefully-honed curriculum that we have taught for the past 20 years.

These sessions are live and interactive, with demonstrations and lots of personal feedback for each student from our instructors and our teaching assistants.

Students will learn how to improve their observational drawing skills through a variety of approaches and will prepare a portfolio of their very best drawings to submit to animation schools in time for 2021 deadlines. Each session is made up of 38 six-hour classes over a five-month period, available in two time zones. Each class is broken down into 2 three-hour sections, with a one-hour break in between them with the exception of the international student sessions which are 4 x 3 hours per week.

Students receive a list of supplies and resources needed to set up an APW workspace at home. We walk them through the setup process in an orientation session before classes commence.

APW Online fees are $4,800.00 (includes HST). Space is limited.

Registration is now closed and courses are full so please stop by to check on upcoming online offerings as we continue to expand and add new courses.
