In this two-week class, students explore character design and what it means to represent oneself inside and out. Using shape language, silhouette, and historical, cultural, and environmental reference, students will experiment with drawing attires to suit a variety of characters, emphasizing their purpose and personas.

Students attending this course will receive in-process feedback, technical presentations, and personal career advice to further comprehend the animation field.

This intensive course is designed for students interested in gaining the skills of creating attire for characters and developing professional animation practices. Previous animation experience is preferred but not required.
