Title:
Pre-College Weekend Intensive: Animation
Instructor: 
Price: 
$205.00

Experience an MCAD studio class in a two-day, hands-on intensive, focusing on an introduction to hand-drawn animation, covering basic techniques and concepts. Students will start with traditional pencil and paper techniques, and then will use aspects of Adobe Photoshop and AfterEffects to bring their animations to life. Students will dig into the fundamentals of animation by learning about frame rate and basic animation principles, such as squash and stretch, ease-in/ease-out, anticipation, and more.

Over one weekend, students will work on an animation project with assistance from an instructor, along with technical demonstrations, guest artist discussions about studio practice and careers, and an information session with admission counselors about portfolio development. This class is an opportunity for young artists to learn and work in an immersive studio class environment. / Open to students ages 15–18. / View complete policies.

Scholarships are available for this class.

Prerequisite: Previous drawing experience, working knowledge of Mac OS X. Experience with AfterEffects and Adobe Photoshop are helpful but not required.
