Starting a new course is a big step, so it’s important to make sure it’s right for you. That’s why we offer a no-strings-attached 2 week free trial of any course!

Whether you’re new to learning online or just want to see if the course is a good fit, the free trial is the best way to experience our high-quality curriculum as if you were enrolled.

The free trial gives you access to 2 weeks of any course we offer, letting you interact with our industry mentors, log in for live video classes, check out the assignments and course content, and make an informed decision on whether our online model suits your learning style.

We believe in small class sizes, so spots are limited to 10 spots per course. Apply now to qualify and we’ll be in touch shortly with further instructions.

How It Works

We’re a little different here at CG Spectrum.

In order for you to progress faster as an artist and get the job skills studios are hiring for, we offer a higher level of interaction and personal attention than many other online schools.

Our mentors are carefully vetted industry professionals who are actively working at major studios. This means you’ll be learning the latest and most relevant techniques used in the industry today.

Choose from private 1-on-1 mentorship or small group classes (never more than 5 students) and attend live weekly video classes with your mentor. Tackle fun, challenging exercises and get expert feedback just as you would in a major studio.

It’s this more personalized education experience that helps build your edge over the competition!

Meet Your Mentors

Having an amazing mentor is one of the most important success factors when it comes to your education.

That’s why all of our mentors are either fresh from or still working at major studios. They’ve won awards, entertained millions and pushed the boundaries of visual effects and game design. They bring a positive attitude and a ton of experience to every class.

That’s the kind of high caliber that sets us apart from other schools.

In this industry, it’s not enough to learn from someone who recently graduated from university, or worked on a film ten years ago. You have to get the most updated, relevant education, straight from the experts on the ground, so you can reach your full potential and get a job.

Choose a mentor you can really look up to.
