Is this animation course available online?

Yes, this can be considered as an online animation course for now. In the wake of the global pandemic, based on Government’s advisory to stay indoors and learn/work from home, we at Arena Animation have activated a contingency plan. Until our learning centres reopen, all Arena Animation courses are delivered as live online classes. You can now join the course online, learn at home, and benefit from the ‘same experience & curriculum’ as that of classroom learning.
