Where Art and Science Merge

Advances in technology have spurred a modern renaissance in visualization. In the European Renaissance, artists were also scientists, architects, and engineers. Today’s artists combine these older disciplines with new ones, including computer science, videography and psychology.

We train technical artists to work on the collaborative teams necessary to make modern visualizations. Our programs produce leaders in the fields where art and science merge.
