This exciting new course has been specifically developed for animators aged 12–16 years to foster and advance their personal skills, understanding, and development in the field of creative animation. Ideally you will have previously completed the Saturday Art School ‘Animation - An Introduction (Stage 1)’ course or possess some previous experience in the concepts and practices of animation.
This exciting course has been specifically developed for young animators aged 12–15 that are taking their first steps in the world of animation or have some previous experience. With expert guidance from their tutor, we’ll help them harness their creativity, artistic knowledge, and gain confidence in creating and sharing their work.
This is a perfect opportunity for a young artist to push their ideas and let loose with their creativity. Animation has no limits, and through this course, young artists can take their first steps into the amazing world of animation!
Each week students will learn new skills using industry standard equipment and techniques that are vital in the world of animation. Skills covered includes 2D animation, character design, storyboarding, as well as a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental principles of animation.
Students will be working in our university specialist studio spaces that have been home to our award-winning graduates, using tools and equipment that the creative industries rely on and become a part of our creative community.
We encourage our young artists to be themselves, and as such we harness a budding artists’ natural style and flair, therefore enabling them to utilise existing creative interests and acquire new skills in the development of their own unique creative visual language
