Join us on for an adventure through the process of creating strong male characters while learning about careers in the animation industry. In this two-week class, students will design their own lead character while studying narrative structure, use of fairy tales, writing tropes, and stereotypes in animation. Starting with storyboard development and basics of character design, students will then transform their sketches into a three-dimensional maquette.

A showcase of all student work will be held at the end of the two-week session; family and friends are encouraged to attend. This class is intended for boys and individuals who self-identify as male. Students will be working in the studio for the majority of the hours class is in session. This is not an animation class, and is focused on design and drawing.
