Animation Studio—On-Campus (Ages 14-18)

Beginning from sketches and storyboards, Animation Studio will help you bring your drawings and ideas to life!

We will be exploring traditional and digital animation techniques including frame-by frame, stop-motion and more, while investigating motion studies, character/environment development, storytelling, and other cinematic devices such as composition, set making, and props. You will be completing several projects and developing a final one based on your own goals and interests.

Your creativity will be sparked with artist presentations, visits to our museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as lively discussion with your classmates.

Note: Basic drawing and computer experience required.

Class will not meet on November 27, 2022.
