In this immersive animation workshop, which spans two weeks, students will create characters and a narrative on paper and work as a group to make their story to come to life through Adobe Flash. 

This workshop will allow students to learn the complex, intensive, and rewarding process of creating a short animated film as a team. This is an amazing opportunity for students to not only improve their concept of motion, but to learn technical and real-world skills. 


$360 per session​​

Figure Academy is an intensive two-week workshop in which students will draw and paint from models for a collective 90 hours. 

Students will study figure drawing in the morning and figure painting in the afternoon. Daily in-depth critiques help students engage in each other's work and give students personal direction for successive studies.  Students are exposed to the works of contemporary figurative artists through presentations and will develop new skills and strong artwork for their portfolios.
