Calling all Young Animators - Teen CTN Summer Camp

TEEN CTN SUMMER CAMP Animation and Design Camp - Where Creative Skills Thrive Beginning June 25th through August 2nd, 2019, middle school, high school and home-schooled artists are invited to build skills and explore having a career in animation and design. APPLY NOW: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfqk8aTvpBKu99mq19JZFWIPG5DU_9uSSbE879tdV0pJD2leg/viewform Returning alumni should fill out the application but are automatically accepted and will receive a 5% loyalty renewal discount toward the fee. Pre-college students from around the world, ages 10-19, are invited in the summer to discover Animation, Art and Design in an intensive experience. Young artists are given an opportunity to explore the fundamentals and options to having a career in this industry. Led by leading professionals the student experiences talks, screenings and open drawing sessions and workshops and group project assignments. Weekly life drawing sessions with live, costumed models allow artists to heighten their drawing skills no matter what place they are starting from--beginners on up. "YEAH!! I learned so much and this class and honestly it broadened my horizons and helped me improve significantly! The mentorship and direction really impacted me as an overall artist and I would not only take this course again, but recommend it for future generations." Put your artist child or your creative self at the heart of the animation community with Teen CTN Summer Camp. This summer camp is held in an inspirational gallery/studio environment over the course of 6 weeks and was created for young artists ages 10 and up who are already showing an interest in or who might have a potential for a career in animation. In a conservatory setting and taught from an artist point of view, this camp will total 60 hours and be held twice a week over six weeks. Designed specifically to give young creators the tools and connections they need through presentations, live demonstrations, hands-on experience while rotating around separate work areas combined with problem-solving exercises that are critical to building the creative thinking mind and powerful skill set needed to enter the world of animation. Lectures introduce students to the history of animated works, both 2D and 3D, and workshops are selected to coax students out of their comfort zone where they can hone new skills and explore what it takes to develop stories, characters and worlds. The program is designed to open young artists' minds to the vast possibilities of animation and to help them develop a richer and more impactful portfolio of work suitable for college application. Led by Sue Goldberg, a veteran Art Director and Animator along with special guest industry professionals students will be guided through this amazing program as they experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to join this community and to generate the work necessary to propel them in either their creative careers or college application portfolios. Followed with a Certificate of Completion and their work being featured in a final live review open house event. About Us: Our goal is to design and implement sustainable and growing programs which have a distinctive and direct positive impact on student participation and learning in the fields of animation, comic books, video games, and filmmaking. An emphasis on high quality and strong curricular relevance and meeting the right people in this industry are key criteria for all program investments. Another key objective is that these programs are scalable to improve both the breadth of content and total student reach over time and live on beyond the program end date. CTN’s core competency in this field is their direct connection with the largest group of key influencers in the animation, visual efx and video game industries.
