The Art Connection Academy - Summer Workshops

Summer Animation Workshops

Our two summer animation workshops bring you together with talented industry veterans.  These immersive workshops offer you the chance to refine ideas, increase workflow, and collaborate with animators and students.  All instructors are currently working professionals at Pixar Animation Studios.

What Makes you Happy?

This summer workshop focuses on making a 24-second film addressing the theme of "happiness."  Students will work with animators from the industry on developing story, character and production design, and animating the project.

2d Character Animation with Flash

In this summer workshop, students will learn how to harness the time-saving power of animating with Flash, while keeping the style of traditional 2D animation.  Students will learn to create their own rigs, and work towards producing a 12-24 second portfolio piece.
