We can’t create the most awesome kids’ content in the world without the most awesome artists in the world.
The Nickelodeon Artist Program is a 6-month, paid talent development program for aspiring animation artists. We seek out talented designers, painters, story artists, and CG artists with diverse voices from underrepresented communities, with the goal of mentoring, developing, and staffing the next generation of inclusive storytellers and content creators.
The Artist Program features three training paths: General Design, Storyboard, and CG Generalist. Each path offers professional development in addition to an apprenticeship on an animated show with exclusive access to directors, supervisors, and lead artists on our productions.
