visual arts and crafts

animation and cartoon drawing
Cartoons and cartoon characters are great fun to draw but you can take your skills one step further by learning how to animate them. Our courses will introduce you to old fashioned animation using flipbooks and zoetropes so you can perfect your understanding of drawing technique and learn how to create short simple narratives. You can then progress onto learning how to apply these skills to more sophisticated forms of animation including stop-motion animation and computer programmes.
