Rajesh N. Pai at PWI

The Portfolio Workshop International (PWI) is our program for international students. In the PWI Summer Program, we offer international students a unique hands-on study experience based on a rigorous schedule of drawing under the supervision of a team of APW instructors. Our intensive one month session is a condensed version of our highly successful eight month Animation Portfolio Workshop program. Classes for the 2011 Portfolio Workshop International took place in July and saw Rajesh Pai complete 4 weeks (Monday to Friday) of intensive Life Drawing and Drawing for Animation classes with APW Instructors Vince Peets and Faisal Raja. APW Program Directors, Gerard Sternik and Vince Peets worked together with Faisal Raja to design a course of study specifically for Rajesh. Prior to beginning the 2011 PWI with us, Rajesh had just completed 3 years of study in Vancouver Film School's Animation department. Because of this experience, Rajesh was not starting at the very beginning. He had specific needs in areas of his drawing that he wished to work on with us to upgrade and improve his professional animation portfolio. Each week Rajesh was introduced to new drawing exercises designed with his particular path of development in mind. Read all of these 4 blog posts - they offer an overview of Rajesh's PWI experience by focusing on his progress from week to week. In addition to posting drawings from the month-long PWI Summer Session, Gerard Sternik, Vince Peets and Instructor Faisal Raja have contributed their thoughts on Rajesh's progress.
