Summer at Sheridan: A look into our Drawing for Animators program
Each summer, up to 260 aspiring high-school animators come to Sheridan to participate in our Drawing for Animators program. We stopped by the Animation 101 course to capture some of the magic that happens in the classroom.
With professor Nic Ter Horst, students are taken through the cycle of creating characters and bringing them to life. They learn the mechanics of walk cycles, and how to represent them with hand-drawn keyframes. By the end of the four-day course, these young animators will have created a looping animation of a believable walking character.
In Drawing for Animators, students get the opportunity to work hands-on with our renowned Animation professors and with professional-grade software. We are proud to host this outstanding learning opportunity at Sheridan so aspiring animators can build a portfolio that may help them secure a spot in our Animation degree program.
