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. **NOTE: Basic drawing and computer experience required.
