Exceptional Minds offers a variety of Workshops for students who seek training in computer animation and visual effects for the purpose of enrichment, preparation for application to the Full-Time Program, personal project completion, or to prepare for specific employment targets.

Private Lessons
Private Lessons offer one-to-one instruction for students ages 16+ in technical, artistic, and employment skills. Private Lessons are available on-site for local students and virtually for students who live more than one hour away.

Summer and Saturday Workshops
Our Saturday, Summer, and After School Workshops expose students to a variety of programs and skills related to animation and VFX. Students have the opportunity to learn in a fun, tolerant, low-pressure classroom environment.

Academy Extensions
Extensions Programs are all-day programs where students can work on personal projects, prepare for Full-Time admissions, or work towards certification in our other specialized programs.

"At Exceptional Minds I became a skilled animator, I learned how to draw fast without thinking and not using an eraser so much, instead now I use a pen to sketch."
