Junior Art and Animation Level 2

Building on the knowledge and experience gained in Level 1 of this course, students are introduced to the traditions of creating engaging character animations. Using both digital and non-digital mediums, students explore human, animal, and inanimate object-based character animation.

Students will learn:
  • Character design and animation production process
  • Storytelling and emotional expression through body language
  • Figurative gesture drawing
  • Fundamentals of 3D computer character rigging and animation
