The APW Boot Camp is an intro to hand-drawn animation and character design. It borrows focused lessons from our highly successful Animation Portfolio Workshop program and rolls them into an intensive 5 day workout. Classes take place Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm. The ratio of 1 instructor to 12 students allows us to focus on the progress of each individual. With the help of an experienced instructor, students do one animation per day and learn the ropes of character design.

Learning by doing. Young people learning traditional animation with their hands. We are happy to witness confidence growing as young people really take to our workshop format and run with it. Our students are generally high school age with a keen interest in animation and have an eye to preparing to make the jump into post-secondary animation programs. This week-long format is an opportunity to get a solid hands-on intro to animation and character design. Direct experience is a big motivator.
