All of the students from the 2012 APW Session and the 2011/12 Fall/Winter Session have just completed the Animation Portfolio Workshop. Each session culminates in two full days of extensive animation portfolio reviews where APW staff carefully select the very best drawings from each students’ work. The figure drawings that are selected and the room drawings and character drawings that are revised make up the final animation portfolio that will be used when applying to top animation schools.
Our students have worked extremely hard in preparation for these portfolio review sessions. Life Drawings are spread out on the floor and object drawings, room drawings and character designs are spread out on tables. APW instructors look at each portfolio drawing to make suggestions for revisions. After going through all of their drawings in this way, the students are prepared for the final portfolio submissions to animation programs such as Sheridan and Seneca as well as several US animation programs.

APW instructors carefully review gesture drawings of the human figure in order to choose the most successful strong drawings for inclusion in each student’s portfolio.
A tired group on the final day of reviews. Many thanks to APW student Megan Sheppard for her fantastic photos!
