I only just completed my first year at Max the Mutt. I decided to attend the school at the suggestion of my friend who works as an animator and attended the school 5 years back. It is a tough program but I have to quote my friend on it, "If you didn't know how to draw going in, you'll know how going out."
On a more in depth explaination : the class sizes are small which is really nice. The instructors are often professionals coming in to teach between work shifts/projects, as well as past students, so they are very knowledgeable and passionate. I have gotten some really good feedback and constructive criticism to help improve my own work. When speaking with others in the animation industry, Max the Mutt students are commented on being good workers, ready to do what is asked of them with little extra teaching when coming on new projects. Nowhere is perfect and of course there are little hang ups here and there but so far I would suggest this school to an inspiring animator/concept artist/sequential artist.
A suggestion if you wish to attend the school : buy way more newsprint than expected.
When choosing Max the Mutt, I was looking for a school that had an in depth art program, allowing me to build the artistic foundations right from the grass roots level to the advanced techniques that are currently being used in the industry by many artists. Most importantly, I wanted to be part of an institution that adhered to the discipline of "hands on" academic learning. My decision was strongly affected by the portfolios the students were able to produce and also the rich experience of the instructors. Their passion and dedication to teaching is of the highest standard and a great motivator for the student. The community is small but focused giving both the instructors and students the opportunity to address any concerns on a one-to-one basis.I am currently enrolled in the first year of the sequential arts program and it has been a great experience so far. My foundations have improved tremendously and I cannot wait to elevate that experience in the coming years.
Your success depends on the way you learn. If you have a strong drive and passion for art and can adapt to the pace of the information taught in the respective programs, it will be very advantageous. If you have no prior experience in art, it will build a strong work ethic and give you the tools necessary to become a successful artist. I strongly recommend Max the Mutt to anyone looking for a concrete art program and a career in the fields of Sequential Illustration, Concept Art and Animation.
