Be prepared to rethink and reimagine ideas and designs as you learn what it takes to be an animator in this two-week class. Drawing, painting, and sculpting techniques will be explored alongside The 12 Principles of Animation, with an emphasis on Timing, Spacing, and Staging. Students will create multiple animation tests and a final project done in paper cut out animation.

Class culminates in a gallery-style showcase of artwork with a screening of all final projects for family and friends. This class is intended for students interested in learning the process of animation. Students will be working in the studio for the majority of the hours class is in session. This class is recommended for students with very little or no experience in animation.
