Animation Studio

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, paper cutout and claymation stop-motion, digital hand-drawn, and 3D animation. 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 software such as Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Premiere, and Maya throughout the course, students develop a final project that is based on individual goals and interests. Artist presentations, trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, and group discussions supplement the studio experience. Basic drawing and computer experience required.

Students who have completed their sophomore year of high school have the option of enrolling for 1.0 college credit for this course by selecting the "for credit" option below.
