In many films, the audience is introduced to a hero who we follow through an epic tale of adventure. What changes when the hero is female? Take the first step on an incredible two-week journey as we look at what it means to be a woman in animation. Students will design their own female lead character while studying narrative structure, fairy tales, and writing tropes and stereotypes in animated films. After developing storyboards and character designs, students will transform their sketches into a 3D maquette. A showcase of all student work will be held at the end of the two-week class.

This class is intended for individuals who identify as female.

Summer Class Equipment Requirements

The Heroine’s Journey will be using traditional art materials for exercises and final projects. 

Students enrolled in this course will be asked to obtain the following materials before class begins: 

  1. Camera/document camera (in addition to the camera they use for Zoom)

Each student will need this in order to share their screen and present their work in class for review. If you do not have access to one of these devices, contact us so we may assist you.
