Applying to the Emile Cohl Art Academy opens the door to prestigious academic standing, in a non-profit, tuition-free format that is administered with an unbiased approach to choosing the best talent available from all walks of life.
Your ability to pay, and any potentially biased application processes do not apply. Your artist’s talent is your source of entry, and your dedication to successfully growing your skills and experience through full-time education is your payment.
Our curriculum focuses on illustration, animation, gaming and VxF expansion, pioneering a path for talented students to begin their training with academic fundamentals before transitioning into to Computer Generated content — fulfilling the whole of your education.
Unlike standard art school admission policies, our exclusive charter is structured with an approach to mentoring talent that begins with stringent candidacy requirements: the competitive spirit, skill, and ambition to become the next leading artist.
ECAA is the first Art Academy of its kind in the U.S., and our groundbreaking opportunity to engage and educate the best talent employs momentous curriculum improvements from traditional higher education.
