In this immersive two-week workshop, we start working on the first day and explore the art of animation using Adobe Animate to create art and characters. You’ll quickly master the computer’s tools for designing and animating scene elements, characters and effects. We’ll share the essential techniques and tricks that master studio animators have cultivated, and you’ll learn how to apply them to your work. Every day you’ll develop your own methods and style while exploring storytelling, movement, sketches and gesture drawing. You’ll also build a portfolio that incorporates your artwork, action studies, and reference materials along with your digital creations.
Our Visual Arts classes do not require any type of assessment or portfolio to get into the program. Instructors will work with your child at the level that they are at. Foundational drawing and sketching skills are helpful in this course to ensure that students are able to create artwork that they are happy with.
