"Zee Institute of Creative Art, with its state-of-the-art infrastructure, gives practical training in 2D Animation, 3D Animation, Visual Effects & Gaming, covering the stages of visualization, Pre-production, production and post-production. At ZICA, a lot of emphasis is laid on the principles of art and design and fundamentals of classical animation, while extracting the same knowledge to computer based Digital animation. Students are also assured of creative exposure with a healthy mix of theory and practical sessions, delivered with the right amalgamation of Art & technology, under the supervision of in-house experienced faculties and industry experts from India and abroad." ZICA's Training Studio is equipped with high end animation tools, 2D animation facilities, 3D software, Visual FX Labs and imaging technologies. After every semester, a well laid out assessment procedure ensures the student's acceptability as dignified professionals in the world of animation.

ZICA propagates the inherent artistic and aesthetic skills in each student, rather than only the software, which keeps on upgrading from time to time.
