France’s Emile Cohl School Opens Tuition-Free LA Academy

The Emile Cohl Art Academy is forging a foothold for the future of entertainment with its newly created fully-sponsored education program in Los Angeles. In March, the property at 2828 S. Grand Ave. was acquired to house a 13,000 square foot, fully remodeled creative hub where instructors and students can participate in a collaborative, empowering arts education.

The Academy will welcome its inaugural class of future gaming, animation, illustration and visual effects masters in September 2020. The first level of the admissions process will be portfolio submissions, reviewed by a panel of artists, teachers and recruiters. Finalists will be invited to the campus for an onsite evaluation, and thereafter the pool of candidates will be pared down to 40 students who will make up the first class for the highly intensive three-year program.

Much like its groundbreaking counterparts Rice, NYU Medical School, Lebron James’ I Promise School, 42 Silicon Valley and the Curtis Institute of Music offer fully-sponsored education in medicine, arts and engineering, Emile Cohl Art Academy is expanding an equal opportunity for talented individuals to attain a specialized education without the worry of overwhelming debt that accompanies traditional tuition requirements.

In return, graduates are fully prepared to contribute to their area of focus using their talent and ambition as starting points for professional careers that are guided by curated learning techniques, leadership, and teamwork that promotes valuable creativity and skill to dominate their industries.

Emile Cohl Art Academy offers project-based learning with a strong focus on drawing and traditional techniques with two majors: Fine Arts Applied to Animation, and Fine Arts Applied to Gaming. Check out Emile Cohl’s student showcase here. Enrolled students are fully sponsored and will be provided with art supplies at no cost.

Motivated, talented artists are invited to submit their portfolios per the instructions available at
