Summer Boot Camp 2009 Curriculum

Intermediate ages 10-14:

June 15-19: Designing Superheroes

Superheroes are a big part of American pop culture with characters as diverse as Batman, Wonder Woman, Mr. Incredible and Diaperman. Students will learn to draw these and their own brightly colored lads and ladies who fight crime. The class will teach the students how to draw humanoid heroes in pose, physique, personality, costume and presentation.

June 22-26: From Storyboard to Animatic

In this class students learn to draw storyboards just like the ones used in movies and television shows. Once the storyboards are created students will develop them into an animated piece. The class will explore drawing, camera moves and lighting, timing and communication, and applying simple animation and camera moves to give a simulation of what a final film would look like.

July 6-11: Rendering Techniques for Comics

(taught by the awsome Daniel Salcido ) This class will focus on illustration techniques including the use of pencil, charcoal, and inking along with cross hatching and other rendering approaches to create shade and shadow and other dramatic effects in cartoon drawings.

July 13-17: Storytelling for Comics

Students will explore the process of creating a story including writing an outline, developing the structure of the story, creating characters, and making rough layouts.

Beginner level ages 7-14:

August 3-7: Cartoon Craft

Young students will participate in a fun week of cartoon and crafts combined, including the creation of projects that explore collage, flipbooks, zoetrope, paper dolls, puppets, and robots.
