instructor profiles Mauricio Abril
Once upon a time Mauricio graduated from UCLA with a degree in Molecular, Cell & Developmental Biology, but he learned a little too late that it didn’t fit him as well as he had hoped. Eventually Mauricio found another career at the Art Center College of Design in Entertainment Design. Mauricio has been working as an Art Director/Concept Artist for various entertainment companies, most notably The Walt Disney Company, as well as a part time instructor at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art. He's currently an Art Director at BRC Imagination Arts where he works on multiple experiential entertainment projects.
