Program Description

Camp Name: 12-Weekend 3D Animation Camp for Kids

Hours: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. (12 Consecutive Saturdays)

Over the course of 12 weekends during the school year, campers study the history of animation and the traditional animation pipeline, and learn the foundational techniques used in modeling, texturing, and animating both characters and environments. Every week, kids explore a new topic within 3D animation to build new skills and original work. Courses focus on storytelling through the audiovisual medium of 3D animation, using industry-standard software and the latest generation Apple computers. Each three-hour class helps students design, storyboard, model, and animate a small scene of their own design.

During the animation camp, students will take classes in History of Animation, Intro to 3D Design, Storyboarding, Intro to Maya, Modeling & Texturing, Texturing Part 2, Walk Cycles, Environment Modeling, Environment Modeling Part 2, Character Animation, Finishing Touches and Rendering, Final Rendering and Showcase. Upon successful completion of camp kids will have created their very own original short animated film, celebrated in a special screening for friends and family.
