Experiential Learning

Animation Portfolio Workshop welcomes online 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 in our virtual studio – APW provides instructors, photo and video reference of a clothed life model. The session is conducted in three segments:

  • SEGMENT ONE – Drawing exercises using video reference of a clothed model. This hands-on segment introduces students to the gesture drawing exercise 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 discussion about entry requirements for post-secondary art programs. Finally, a Q & A period for visiting students.
