Denver Entertainment Art & Design Academy

Art Classes for the Movie, Video Game, Comic Book, and Practical FX Industries



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.


The Academy is currently closed for the Winter Term. We are still taking phone calls and requests to be added to our mailing list for upcoming classes, teachers, events and more. You can join our mailing list by sending an email to with the subject "Add me to your newsletter."


A new schedule of classes is in the works for Spring Term and Summer Term. We will be offering reduced costs for "Early Bird" enrollments (more info on that to come), and seats for these classes will be limited to keep class sizes down to a level that is best for both teachers and students.  The goal is to have the new schedule online by mid-January, so be sure to check back after the 15th!


Founder and Instructor Zak Hennessey is also offering small classroom classes for people looking to get into comics, movies, and video games. These classes take students beyond the regular curriculum, and allows for more one-on-one opportunities. If you would like to learn more about these classes, email him at
