Anime & Animation Ages 11-teens

Beginner-Intermediate: Develop character designs and animation skills.

Create dynamic 2D Animes & Animations! This two-week camp will cover the basics of both computer & classical animation.

We will be using Open Toonz 2D animation production software. Once used by Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Arrietty, Princess Mononoke), it is now available at no cost for both commercial and non-commercial users.

With its intuitive workspace and range of drawing, painting and animation tools, it is an excellent choice for animators.

Week 1 will begin with story and character development. As campers progress with their projects into week two, we will look at ways to enhance each participant’s skills.

By the end of the camp participants will have a number of projects to share with friends and family!
