The building that the Academy was leasing was purchased by a new owner in July of 2014. They allowed us to continue running classes until December of 2015. In 2016, they announced plans to renovate the building so they ended our lease. Denver being the way it is, finding a new place to teach classes and still keep enrollment as affordable as possible seems unlikely, but if you would like to be notified of future classes, please contact us at email@example.com.
UPCOMING COMIC BOOK, MOVIE and VIDEO GAME CLASSES
Owner and Founder Zak Hennessey, instructor of the comic book, video game, and movie art classes, is considering teaching private classes to smaller groups of individuals. If that is something you would be interested in, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPCOMING FX MAKEUP CLASSES
For those who came here looking for our FX classes, we are still in touch with Brandon Hovet, Evan Hedges, and Kevon Ward. From time to time they may decide to independently run workshops or classes. If you would like your information forwarded to them, please email email@example.com with the Subject "FX classes with (teacher name)" and we will forward it.
The Denver Entertainment Art and Design Academy was created to offer those who wish to pursue an education in the entertainment industry the chance to get a Los Angeles quality art education while living in Colorado. From movies to video games to comic books and more, it's our goal to bring in teachers who are professionals in their industries to show students exactly what employers in their fields are looking for. Whether attending for fun or to one day work in one of the major entertainment industries, our goal is to build your portfolio, because that is what Art Departments care about above all else - that you can get the job done and have an eye for design.
We have begun adding classes for our Spring Term! See what classes we are offering in our Comic Book, Foundation, and Production Design (Character/Creature Design) departments! We will be adding our FX makeup and sculpting classes shortly, but be sure to check out our Lifecasting and Sculpting class from our new instructor, Tess Laeh of FaceOff Season 6!
In 2015, most of our classes will only run one time during the year, so if you see something you want to take, be sure to sign up when you see it, because chances are it won't be offered again in 2015.

ART CLASSES FOR THE FX MAKEUP INDUSTRY
Thanks to shows like FaceOff and The Walking Dead, this has become one of our most popular departments. We've had some great professionals come in and take our classes, and many of our earliest students now work in the industry. One of our students really took the reigns and has added 7 shows to his IMDb listing. If you've seen it on FaceOff, we've taught it, and more. Our 2015 schedule will have limited slots, so if interested, get on our radar.
ART CLASSES FOR THE COMIC BOOK INDUSTRY
One of our most popular areas, the comic book classes teach you how to block out, compose, layout, rough, pencil, ink, color, and letter a comic book like the pros. It takes a lot of work to create a comic book, so it isn't for everybody. Some of our more dedicated students have gone on to successfully create their own comcs. Our 2015 schedule will have limited slots, so if interested, get on our radar.
ART CLASSES FOR THE MOVIE INDUSTRY
The most popular classes in this area are our concept art classes, which include character design, creature design, heroic figures and forms, heroic heads and hands, and action anatomy (all of which go well with our comic book and video game departments). Due to time constraints, there will be fewer classes in this area in 2015, so if you see one and want to take it, best to sign up as soon as you can.
ART CLASSES FOR THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY
Another fairly popular department, that has a lot of crossover with the Movie art classes. As with those classes, there will be fewer offerings in this area due to time constraints, so if you see a class that interests you, it would behoove you to sign up earlier rather than later, due to the limited slots that will be available.
ART CLASSES FOR SCULPTING
In this department, we teach classes that help you create fantastic props, monster heads, maquette sculptures, statuettes, and more. There is a lot of crossover between this department and the FX makeup class, as the sculpting skills taught here are invaluable for those who wish to make FX masks, and prosthetics. As with all classes in 2015, there will be a very limited number of seats available.
