Want to get into Animation school?
The first. The Original. The best animation portfolio prep course in Canada. Animation Portfolio Workshop sessions make use of a hands-on workshop learning environment that brings together carefully designed exercises to build a solid understanding of core drawing fundamentals suitable for animation. Eventually, with the help and guidance of the APW team – students create the drawings needed for their own portfolios. No “quick-tips” or short-cuts can ever substitute for the real work of learning to draw.
Werner Zimmermann, an artist/illustrator/life drawing instructor presently teaching life drawing to animation students at Seneca’s Animation Arts Centre in Toronto has this to say:
I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but now with the the new semester at Seneca I’m compelled to finally say it: Animation Portfolio Workshop is really making a difference in the quality of students that come into my first semester Life Drawing classes.
Although I am speaking solely for myself and not on behalf of Seneca College, after over 25 years of teaching I have seen all levels of students entering the life drawing classes. Simply said, there is a difference. Solid understanding of drawing fundamentals is immediately apparent in their work. Whatever they are doing, I personally endorse the work they do to prepare students for the creative challenges of animation programs regardless of school.
Animation study, as rewarding as it is, is very challenging, demanding and often exhausting. Any preparation, especially of the quality of APW is well worth seriously looking into.
Well done guys! Keep them coming!
