Animation is constantly changing and evolving, but even with the latest digital techniques drawing and story-telling remain key elements of any successful production. This course will help you develop these skills, and you’ll also engage in debates on art, design and literature, subjects which will be central to your development. You will work on individual and group projects, and have the opportunity to collaborate with students from Photography Video Art, Illustration and other courses. Learn about how animation’s origins are rooted in the disciplines of art and design. Study the fundamental principles of your art through drawing and story-telling narratives.
