Katie Rose Sheehan18, BFA, Animation

Katie Rose Sheehan is from the South Shore of Massachusetts and chose to pursue a degree in animation while she was sitting in her dorm at UMass Amhearst watching the Disney movie Brave. Katie ended up spending more time researching animation than doing actual homework, and so she decided to pursue animation as a career. On her first day at MassArt, Katie knew that she had found the place for her. She felt like she belonged.

"This school gave me all the tools to succeed in following my dreams and my professors gave me the courage to explore learning different animation methods, even if it meant failing ten times to get one amazing piece."
