The ‘California Institute of The Arts’, also known as ‘CalArts’, is an art lover’s paradise. It is one of the most preferred institutions for students aspiring to learn more about visual and performing art forms. As compared to other notable universities in the United States, CalArts was started rather recently, in 1949. This notable university has felicitated several eminent personalities for their outstanding contributions towards the field of art. The state of the art infrastructure of ‘CalArts’ deserves a special mention. Quite recently, two massive spaces, namely ‘Wild Beast’ and ‘John Baldessari Art Studio Building’ were opened for the students to practice their craft. While ‘Wild Beast’ is a 3200 square feet wide performance space, the ‘John Baldessari Art Studio’ sprawls over 7000 square feet and was constructed in a budget of $3.1 Million. The esteemed institution has produced several talented artistes, some of whom have become great legends in the field of art. These noteworthy personalities include maverick filmmaker Tim Burton, actor and host Paul Reubens, as well as filmmaker Sofia Coppola. Former animation students of ‘CalArts’ have worked on several big-budget Hollywood flicks and have been responsible for producing some of the most remarkable CGI sequences of all time. Chris Buck is one such alumnus of this prestigious university who won an Academy Award for his outstanding work in the animated film ‘Frozen’. These famous people include American jazz musician James Newton, renowned dancer Donald McKayle and playwright Peter Sellers. Here’s a list of former CalArts students who have conquered great heights and left millions of people awestruck with their achievements.
