  • 我的孩子 Ian Liao 因為您們的教導及鼓勵 使他能夠實現進入Art Center College of Design的願望 並且獲得高額的入學獎學金 Kazone的學習經驗 在 Ian 的成長過程中扮演著非常重要的角色 --- 不只在設計專業上 同時是在人格成長上   我看到孩子在老師的關懷, 啟發及嚴格要求下 能踏實努力及願意自我挑戰 在他收到Art Center錄取通知時 他告訴我 "媽媽 我知道未來沒有什麼事可以難倒我的了 !" 是Kazone的學習經驗 讓Ian 建立了這個信念   Ian 現在在學校 常跟我分享 Kazone 的學習經驗 讓他能以獨特的觀點去創造自己的作品及欣賞評論同儕的作品 我想 很重要的是 他知道他要成為什麼樣的人   謝謝您們建立了孩子的信心及給我們的溫暖!!

  • Kazone has a great staff with lots talent, enthusiasm and most of all sincere efforts from instructors for all student to achieve their pursuing goal.  With my kid's case, he has really struggled after his initial portfolio, but with consistent push and lead from the staff (especially Lim),  he has built a strong enough portfolio to get admitted to his dream school, Art center.  I truly appreciate the help and direction from Kazone for building a great path for my kid and highly recommend this place to any individual pursuing art field. -Andrew Paek (Parent)-

  • Great teachers and great school! Kazone has taught me so much about being an entertainment artist and the instructors have given me so much knowledge and insight in the entertainment business and art in general. They expect a lot of handwork and dedication, but it was worth it by gaining confidence in my artwork!

  • I looked for an art academy where I could take more advanced classes and that is where I met Lim Hur, a graduate of ACCD who is a concept artist for video games/films/commercials and also an  art teacher at Kazone Art Academy. Even more than inspiring me with her artwork, Ms. Hur has  taught me – oftentimes the hard way – the great necessity of developing the virtues of discipline and hard work.
