Bring your drawings and ideas to life in Animation Studio. This course is designed for students who wish to explore traditional and digital animation techniques, such as frame-by-frame, stop-motion, and more. Beginning from sketches and storyboards, students complete several projects that focus on communicating ideas through motion studies, character/environment development, storytelling, and other cinematic devices such as composition, set making, and props. Using a variety of tools throughout the course, students develop a final project that is based on individual goals and interests. Artist presentations, visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, and group discussions supplement the studio experience.
**NOTE: Basic drawing and computer experience required.
"I really enjoyed this course and learned so much. Prior to this, I had never done animation or any type of digital art, but this class gave me an amazon opportunity with a lot of help wherever I needed it."
