TAIS offers a year-round series of workshops, courses and demos to expand your animation skills. Taught in-person at our fully equipped production centre, you’ll learn first-hand from an experienced artist. From hand-drawn and stop-motion animation, to sound, emerging technologies and more, there’s something to learn for everyone.

We recommend booking at least 2 weeks in advance. All equipment and software is subject to availability.
PICKUP and DROP OFFS Monday-Sat 10am-5pm by appointment. All members must book an appointment for pickup and drop off.

TAIS is mandated to support independent animation production, and as such TAIS prioritizes bookings for projects that are entirely or partially incorporating animation arts. Non-animation production rentals will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Due to COVID-19, we request that members wear masks upon entry.
The use of TAIS equipment and studios constitutes a form of production assistance to the animator from TAIS, and as such TAIS must be fully acknowledged and credited in the titles and/or credits of any production using TAIS resources and/or receiving subsidized assistance.
