California Institute of the Arts

California Institute of the Arts

Founded by Walt Disney in 1961, ‘CalArts’ – as it is fondly known by staff and students – has been described as ‘the Harvard Business School of Animation’.

The first US educational institution to grant degrees in both the visual and performing arts, it offers a vast selection of programmes within its schools of art, critical studies, dance, film, music and theatre.

With cross-pollination between different fields as its defining philosophy, its impressive roster of graduates includes some of the biggest names in animation – including Rob Minkoff, director of The Lion King and Stuart Little.
