The Animation Workshop one-week Summer Courses 2018

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Summer course in Comic creation:
Through a series of exercises and small projects the teacher will teach you the basic principles of graphic storytelling and challenge you to work with the media in different ways. There will be a mixture of well defined and more free assignments, where you get to work with your own ideas. An introduction to some of the rich world of comics and graphic novels is part of the course

Summer course in Animation for Beginners:
While doing exercises and small movie productions you will work through the entire process of making an animation film. We will go through everything from idea to the finished product and at the same time teach you the basic principles of animation. You will have the opportunity to work with different animation techniques such as stop-motion, cut-out, modelling wax, and hand drawn animation using the computer program TV-Paint.

Summer Course in Classical Drawing:
You will be working a lot with the drawing of live models, both fast drawings where we practice dynamic, movement, and flow as well as more in-depth model studies with the opportunity for immersion. Apart from that there will be a number of drawing exercises without the use of a live model, which can include both sketching and longer studies. The teacher offers individual feedback based on each person’s level of skills so both beginners and highly skilled artists are welcome. Our approach to drawing is very craft based - anatomy and form are fundamental.


The courses will run in the second week of July, July 9-15 2018.

Since all the classes are taught at The Animation Workshop, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and have fun with participants from other classes during the breaks, and in the evening there will be various activities. The teachers are all affiliated with The Animation Workshop, either as part of the permanent staff or as freelancers.
