Toronto School of Art is pleased to offer a March Break week-long intensive course from 9am-4pm during the week of March 12th.
March Break Camp for Teens: Life Drawing for Animation (Ages 14-18)
Bodies in motion, bodies at rest… an understanding of the structure and movement of the human body is one of the most useful elements in the toolkit of animators, cartoonists - and anyone creating imagined or narrative artworks.
This week-long workshop is intended first and foremost with future animators in mind. Working with live models, we will focus on the most important elements of simplified body structure. Poses will be short, and our emphasis will be on describing body forms dynamically - through gesture drawing and fast contour drawing. Ways to work through drawing challenges - including proportion and foreshortening will also be covered, as well as tips and strategies for challenging forms like heads and hands. Exercises to stimulate your storytelling imagination will also be included.
Instruction will consist of short demonstration drawings, handouts - and lots of drawing time. Work produced in this workshop will be appropriate for building a stronger portfolio for anyone seeking to apply to animation programs.
Tuition fee: $405 | Model and materials fee : $110 | Total: $515
1-hour lunch break each day. This course is co-taught by Faculty Members Thomas Hendry and Megan Williams.
