Break into the industry via the program that produces Academy Award winning animators.

For 50 years, Sheridan has been considered one of the best animation schools in the world.

Professional, hands-on instruction and creative freedom

In our Animation degree program, you’ll learn from industry professionals, using the same techniques and tools that you'll eventually need in the workplace. Using state-of-the-art software and hardware, you’ll create your own stories, designs, characters and layouts, and produce your own films.

From story pitch to finished film

Sheridan’s animation program emphasizes classical principles of animation in a variety of forms, including 2D digital, 3D and stop motion. You’ll learn the art of storyboarding and hone your life drawing, layout and digital painting skills. Working collaboratively or individually on productions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore all aspects of animation filmmaking.

Career connections

After Year 3, you’ll gain professional experience during a three-month work placement. And at our annual Industry Day, employers will fly in from across North America to meet you, see your work and conduct interviews.

A reputation for excellence

Students come from all over the world to study animation at Sheridan. That’s because our Animation program has such a strong reputation. Michael Hirsh, co-founder of Nelvana, refers to Sheridan as the “Harvard of Animation.”

Our graduates go on to work in television and feature animation at major studios throughout North America.

Sheridan Animation courses are held in Oakville, Ontario.
