Experiential Learning

Animation Portfolio Workshop welcomes drawing field trips from public and private schools.

The three-hour class – with breaks – begins with a brief orientation and intro to what we do at the Animation Portfolio Workshop. Then it’s on to the session – APW provides an instructor, drawing benches, drawing boards, and a clothed life model. The class is conducted in three segments:

  • SEGMENT ONE – Drawing exercises using a live, clothed model. This hands-on segment introduces students to some of the initial work taught in our many workshop classes.
  • SEGMENT TWO – A workout in the basics of animation character-drawing.  Exercises taken from the APW curriculum cover a fun intro to character construction and posing.
  • SEGMENT THREE – A brief presentation of student portfolios, and a question-and-answer period for visiting students.
