Gnomon's summer camp for high school students is designed to empower young artists by engaging their creativity, curiosity and passion. Students are introduced to various forms of artistic expression within the fields of entertainment design, animation, visual effects and games. Small classes enable our instructors to spark inspiration, share expertise and provide students with a clear perspective on how to become a professional visual effects artist.

Summer camp at Gnomon is a one-week, hands-on camp that gives high school students an in-depth experience focusing on creative arts in the entertainment industry. Summer camp coursework provides an opportunity for aspiring young artists to interact with industry professionals in a small classroom environment.

"Take a look at the graduate work and you can see that it is a testament to how incredible Gnomon really is. Its first class facilities, technology and teaching staff gives students the greatest chance they will ever have at placement within the entertainment industry."
