Do you have a passion for animation and a story you’d like to tell? Do you have a character that you want to see come alive on the “big screen”? Are you curious about how films such as Para Norman, or cartoons like Steven Universe are made? Plaza Cinema MAC’s summer animation classes are open to students of all ages and artistic backgrounds who wish to explore the magic of animation.

For our summer animation courses we offer three different class sessions, Introduction to Animation, Fundamentals of Animation, and Advanced Animation. We encourage those who are less familiar with animation to take part in our introductory course covering the very basics of animation, art, and design. Students who feel they have more experience with animation are encouraged to take part in our advanced animation classes to further expand their animation knowledge and apply it to short story animation projects. We welcome students of all ages and skill levels. In each and every one of our classes, we will work with students based on their own personal level of experience.

Each session runs for 2 weeks at a time, classes are 5 days a week from 9:30am- 12:30pm. The classes are taught by an experienced animator and instructor. All materials will be provided; if you are more comfortable using your own equipment (iPad, drawing materials, laptop) that’s great too!
