Founded in 2007, we are a private design school located in Pasadena, California, near the center of the animation, film and game industry.
At Concept Design Academy, we are committed in establishing a community where artists with passions for both traditional & entertainment arts can meet to develop their skills together.
Our goal is to strive in providing the best art and designs instruction available. We offer easy to follow foundational courses for aspiring artists and advance workshops for seasoned professionals.
