Animation Mentor Party 2023

Get Ready to Celebrate With Us

Congratulations, graduates, you did it! We are so proud of all you’ve learned.

This year we’re excited to celebrate graduation as an online event. Last year was so much fun, we loved seeing so many friendly faces.

We had hoped to celebrate with you in person (and things are slowly starting to move back towards normalcy) but as an online, global school we want our events to always be safe and inclusive. Travel isn’t back to normal for everyone yet, but soon!

While we are excited to host a fun, online celebration for our 2023 graduates, we also can’t wait to see you all in person. Our hope is that in 2024 we’ll be able to invite several years’ worth of grads to celebrate together. Can you imagine how awesome that will be? We can’t wait!

We’re hosting a virtual reception after the main ceremony so we can chat, hang out, and congratulate our grads!

Celebrating our Graduates

This group will receive special recognition during the celebration. The event is not a traditional graduation ceremony, but we will honor the graduating students.

Here’s a general guideline of which students are graduating:

  • Students who completed AN06 Fall 2022 term, which ended on December 16, 2022
  • Students who completed AN06 Winter 2023 term, which ended on March 27, 2023
  • Students who will complete AN06 Spring 2023 term, which ended on June 16, 2023
  • Students who will complete AN06 Summer 2023 term, which ended on September 15, 2023

Current students: Please note that taking a term or two off will affect your program completion date, so check the guidelines above when planning your schedule. If you need to take a term off, and won’t complete the program by Summer 2023, don’t worry. We’re more than happy to celebrate you at the party in 2024!

A is for AWESOME…

…and that’s what you are! On behalf of the Animation Mentor family, congratulations on such a huge milestone and a big thanks for making the community all that it is today! Animation is not easy, but you have done it well and we’re absolutely inspired by the work you’ve put out into the world. We can’t wait to see you at the party!
