Animation City is nurturing new animation artists throughout the City of Toronto.

Animation City teaches the basics of animation to children, youth, adults and seniors, in collaboration with schools, festivals, and community organizations across Toronto.

With our fleet of 10 PC Stop motion animation kits, a lighting package, 4 portable Macbook animation kits, and a team of expert instructors, TAIS can design and deliver a range of educational programs tailored to your classroom, community group, arts organization, or special event. One-day and Two-day workshops are available.
