College to host animation information session and open house
Okanagan College Media Release

Anna Harestad stepped into Okanagan College’s new Animation lab last September armed with pencils, paper and a life-long dream of bringing her artwork to life on screen. This week, future animators looking to follow in her footsteps will have a chance to see work produced by Harestad and her classmates during their first year and to explore the cutting-edge space, tools and mentors helping OC students make their animation dreams a reality.Anna Harestad April 2018

The College will be opening up the doors of its new Animation lab, located in the Okanagan Innovation Centre at 460 Doyle Avenue in downtown Kelowna, from 5 – 8 p.m. on May 4, for an info night and open house. The event is free and open to the public.

Attendees will have a chance to tour OC’s animation classroom, check out the state-of-the-art equipment and chat with instructors and students.

“Animation is my life – it is the thing I am most certain I was born to do,” says Harestad, who wrapped up her first-year of study in the program earlier this month. “I know my class is looking forward to showing what they’ve learned so far, sharing their work and helping people step into our world to see what animation is all about.”

The College will welcome its next intake of students into the two-year diploma program in September.

The Provincial Government recently announced funding that will allow the College to continue to offer the program on an ongoing basis and at a lower cost to students.
