APW COVID-19 INFO
This page communicates our continuing response to the COVID-19 pandemic for students/parents of students planning on attending sessions of the Animation Portfolio Workshop.
Since we hold our classes in Toronto, Canada we refer to Toronto Public Health every day for the latest information. Please continue to check back regularly for updates as circumstances can change daily.
NEW APW Online
The entire APW team is in full production mode, moving our comprehensive portfolio preparation program online. APW Online will offer students the closest possible experience to attending in person and will deliver exactly the same carefully-honed curriculum we have been teaching for 20 years.
Sessions will be live and interactive, with demonstrations and personal feedback from our instructors. 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. There will be 38 six-hour classes over a four-month period, available in two time zones. Each class will be broken down into 2 three-hour sections, with a one-hour break in between them.
Students will receive a list of supplies and resources needed to set up an APW workspace at home. We will walk them through the setup process in an orientation session before classes commence.
APW Online fees will be $4,800.00 (includes HST). Space is limited.
Registration is now open and courses are filling up so click here and sign up today for your spot. Spaces are limited.

Launch Date – September 2020
All APW in-person classes have been moved to 2021/22
APW has had to make the difficult decision to move all of our in-person classes to 2021/22 with the exception of the Winter Intensive. The WI is able to run because we can practise physical distancing with the 12 student maximum of this group. This may change if there is a second wave and we may have to move this one to next year as well. We will leave it as is until mid- August.
You will NOT get a refund if you are sick or if we simply have to move the start date of the classes at our physical location as we will be able to deliver enough of the course content online and the value will be equivalent to the classroom content.
We acknowledge that the safety and health of our students, instructors, models and APW team is connected to the safety and health of our city. APW is very grateful for the tireless work on the part of Toronto Public Health.
