Testimonials from our previous students:

“I have been working in Film & Television as a professional concept artist for the past six years. I have worked on shows for Disney+ and Netflix, Marvel properties and independent feature films. The fact of the matter is without the practical education I received at PAD I wouldn’t have been able to do any of that. There’s literally nowhere else.”
Nicholas W.
“After 1 year at PAD, I had the skills and knowledge to confidently enter the Concept Art for film industry as a freelancer. PAD’s unique course content…has led me to obtaining a permanent position at a AAA video game studio in Canada.”
Aimee C.
“For the last several years, I have been working in film, television and advertising as a concept artist, illustrator and member of the art and costume department. The skills I acquired from the Production Art Department have been absolutely invaluable in my career…I utilise the design skills…on a daily basis…I would not be where I am today without having attended such an amazing and inspiring school.”
Eugenie O.
“The knowledge and skills that I acquired were fundamental to my career as an artist, and I believe that the guidance and education that PAD provided me were invaluable to my personal, professional and creative development…I have had consistent work in the entertainment art industry…For the last 5 years I have worked in Concept Art for Games, Background Art in Animation, and Illustration for book covers.”
Patryk O.
“My time at Production Art Department (PAD) was pivotal for me in acquiring the skills and experience needed to land the job I have today as a Concept Artist in the Games Industry…The content at PAD is unique and fills a gap in the education sector that isn’t filled by another institution in Sydney.”
Oskar R.
“PAD helped build my reputation to where I am now; working in the game industry as a 3D character designer in LA. Even now I still apply those fundamentals to my current practice…”
Siobhan D.
“I wholeheartedly believe that the education…I received from my time studying here was instrumental in launching my career…it is my humble opinion that the format and quality of education within PAD was the most conducive to my success as an Artist.”
Daniel P.
“The skills that I have learnt while studying at Production Art Department have been deeply impactful to me in my career and one of the main reasons that I am able to work as a storyboard artist in animation today.”
Ranran Z.
“The difference between the portfolio I started with and the one I had after graduating are worlds apart in quality and really speaks to the teachers dedication to their students…I will always be thankful that PAD lead me to a career in an industry that I flourish in and adore.”
Bronte R.
“After leaving PAD, the knowledge and training in perspective and lighting were invaluable to me as I began freelancing in illustration. I went from being lost and aiming wildly in the dark, to confidence in the accuracy of my work…For a student who wishes to learn the difficult craft of creating a convincing image from the imagination, rigorous training in perspective, colour and anatomy are essential.”
Rosemary F.
“I am confident that had I missed the opportunity to study at PAD, I would have spent many years attempting to progress…I can now compete for opportunities and work at an international level, which may never have come to pass otherwise…PAD is a slice of…world-class education planted in Australia…”
Noah H.
“Having been to other art-related programs…I can safely say the Production Art Department has offered, by far, more in-depth education in art than any of these other programs…I can’t thank PAD’s teachers enough for the knowledge they provided me.”
Brendan B.
“I have previously tried other art courses but none of those courses came close to PAD in terms of helping you build many of the important foundational skills that are required to become an employable artist. At PAD, the courses are geared towards actually teaching you artistic skills…in contrast to some courses that will give you plenty of homework and assignments, but you have to rely mostly on whatever art skills you already have…”
Jessica G.
“PAD offers a set of real industry skills that are lacking elsewhere in professional art education. They are improving the standard of entertainment art within Australia – bridging the gap between fundamental art skills and industry expertise.”
Sienna W.
“My time at PAD taught me core fundamental art skills and cutting edge technical workflows, connected me with like-minded peers, as well as being able to learn directly from world-class industry professional artists and illustrators.”
William W.
“The tuition at PAD is of the highest quality and has been invaluable to me and my growth as an artist…I learnt more in my one year at PAD than at art college and 3 years undergraduate fine art training. The skills & concepts I learnt at PAD are used everyday.”
Tristan B.
“Over the past four years I have attended several courses in person and online. During that time my knowledge of traditional and digital art techniques, colour theory and design concepts has grown enormously…Simply put, my art practice and portfolio would not be at the standard required to work in the entertainment industry without the skills I have acquired at PAD…I believe PAD is the leading college for entertainment design in the country.”
