3D Animation Summer Camps For Teens

Learn How to Make 3D Animation Content at NYFA

The 3D animation camps and workshops at NYFA provide students aged 14-17 with an opportunity to learn the essentials of 3D animation and visual effects (VFX). Throughout these programs, students study the basic skills of animation, including drawing, painting, storyboarding, and sculpting, learning under the guidance of NYFA’s faculty of professional animators and visual effects artists. Students will get hands-on experience and create their own short films, gaining an introduction to visual storytelling. NYFA currently offers in-person, on-campus summer camps and weekend workshops. We also offer online programs on a seasonal basis.

3D Animation Summer
Camps: Level I

In the level one programs, students learn how to create their own original characters and environments, working through each step of a professional animation pipeline.

During these camps, students work with industry standard 3D Maya software to build their models and apply basic animation techniques, creating a short 60-90 second animated clip. While some of our teen camps offer level two programs, our 3D Animation programs are currently available as level one programs only.

Online 3D Animation
Summer Camps

Designed to introduce students to the exciting world of 3D Animation, our online summer camp is an immersive, interactive program.

During our virtual 4-Week camp, teens from all over the world can study at NYFA, learning how to create their own original 3D animation content. This full-time, remote day camp is offered during the summer.

After-School &
Weekend Workshops

The 3D Animation workshops help students explore their interests in modeling, animation, and virtual storytelling. In these hands-on programs, teens study under the guidance of our experienced faculty and create their own animation content.

Students will study essential principles of animation, using industry-standard software to experiment with making objects move and shift. These programs are offered during the academic year, and are available as in-person and online after school or weekend programs.

Alumni Work

The successes of any NYFA alumni are the result of their individual hard work, perseverance, talent and circumstances.

New York Film Academy cannot guarantee that any future graduate will achieve similar success or secure a position in the industry. We’re extremely proud of the NYFA camp alumni who have used their training from NYFA’s 3D animation camp and workshops to pursue their creative goals and interests in animated films and television, VFX work, video games, and much more.
