  • "The time I have spent at Syn Studio helped me improve and become a concept artist in the video game industry. At Syn Studio, you receive technical knowledge from artists that are already working in the field. If you're serious about your goals, then this is a good place for learning, networking and working like crazy on your portfolio with people as passionate as you are."

    Emylie Boivin

    Concept artist at Frima

  • "I'm now a concept artist at Triotech Amusement, I've been taking classes and workshops at Syn Studio for almost 3 years to get the job I have now. All the teachers are super professional and highly responsible. I witnessed Syn Studio getting more and more of a good reputation in training professional artists in video games, film and fine art. There are more and more artists related to Syn Studio, it has become such an incredible place for artists to hang out, get contacts and have fun. And I do sincerely appreciate so much what Syn Studio has done."

    Concept Artist at Triotech Amusement

  • "During my time at Syn Studio (where I took classes and studied) many of our teachers were professionals in the movie and game industry as well as illustrators, like Dhamindra Jeevan, Charles Vinh, Meinert Hansen, Donglu Yu. They really pushed me with their feedback [...] Also, Charles Vinh was particularly very important. He is an illustrator here in Canada, and I credit him largely for having taught me so much about color theory and lighting, as well as having taken traditional painting classes with him, he showed me a lot of techniques that were invaluable in my development.”

I've taken classes over the years and enjoyed them a lot, particularly because of the variety they have to offer.
