Join us in our digital illustration, animation and traditional 2D/3D art camp as we work on projects which will ping pong between digital and traditional mediums. Projects will include basic drawing, character design, perspective drawing, and digital layering and application knowledge through tablet applications like Procreate and Rough Animator. Students will learn through digital prompts and demonstrations, drawing challenges, and studio team building exercises. They will also create moving pictures and videos through animation applications. Students will create physical sculptures of characters with clay and even create temporary tattoos in order to gain experience in creating work that has real world applications.

On the final day of class, students will get a thumb-drive with all the digital work they created in the class to keep and take home. Let’s see where our creative ideas take us!
