Animated Arts expands the notion of animation to embrace the hybrid moving image, encouraging you to explore and combine fine art practices and digital technologies. At a time when the boundaries between live action, animation, painting, photography, illustration, and design are dissolving, an interdisciplinary fine art approach encourages you to reimagine and create frame-based work for multiple contexts.

In addition to learning principles of animation, you experiment with a variety of media, production methods, and narrative strategies to produce work for multiple and varied platforms. We teach the history of animated arts in the context of a broad engagement with both cinema and fine art. 

Boundary Crossings

PNCA’s biennial Boundary Crossings Institute in Animated Arts is a two-week intensive institute open to working professionals and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students interested in a hands-on exploration of animated installation as a medium and a site for investigation of moving image interdisciplinary practice.
