Summer Courses – Comic creation

In this course, you will spend a week playing with drawing and storytelling. Through a series of exercises and small projects the teacher will teach you the basic principles of graphic storytelling and challenge you to work with the media in different ways. There will be a mixture of well defined and more free assignments, where you get to work with your own ideas. An introduction to some of the rich world of comics and graphic novels is part of the course.

Summer Courses – Classical Drawing

In this course we will work with classical drawing, with and without a model. We have a very craft based approach to drawing, where anatomy and form are fundamental. We will be working a lot with the drawing of live models, both fast drawings where we practice dynamic, movement, and flow as well as more in-depth model studies with the opportunity for immersion. Apart from that there will be a number of drawing exercises without the use of a live model, which can include both sketching and longer studies. The course is primarily for young people who enjoy drawing. The teacher offers individual feedback based on each person’s level of skills so both beginners and highly skilled artists are welcome.

Summer Courses – Animation for Beginners

This course is an introduction to animation production and is for anyone who wants to try their hands at animating. While doing exercises and small movie productions you will work through the entire process of making an animation film. We will go through everything from idea to the finished product and at the same time teach you the basic principles of animation. You will have the opportunity to work with different animation techniques such as stop-motion, cut-out, modelling wax, and hand drawn animation using the computer program TV-Paint.
