Beginning June 2020, middle school, high school, and home-schooled artists are invited
to explore having a career in animation and design.
Our goal is to design and implement a sustainable community of growing programs which have a distinctive and direct positive impact on student participation and learning in the fields of animation, comic books, video games, filmmaking and becoming an artist in the animation community. An emphasis on high quality and strong curricular relevance, as well as meeting the right people in this industry are key criteria for all program investments. Another key objective is that these programs are scalable to improve both the breadth of content and total student support over time. CTN’s core competency in this field is their direct connection with the largest key influencers in the animation, visual effects, and video game industries.

TEEN CTN is a real game changer for so many.
Pre-college students from around the world, ages 13 - 18, are invited in the summer to discover Animation, Art, and Design in an intensive experience. (Ages 8-12 are accepted based on teachers approval) Young artists are given an opportunity to explore the fundamentals and options to having a career in this industry. Led by leading professionals, the student experience includes: talks, screenings, open drawing sessions/workshops, and group project assignments. Weekly life drawing sessions with live, costumed models allow artists to heighten their drawing skills no matter what place they are starting from--beginners on up.
"YEAH!! I learned so much in this class and honestly, it broadened my horizons and helped me improve significantly! The mentorship and direction really impacted me as an overall artist, and I would not only take this course again, but recommend it for future generations."
Put your artist child or your creative self at the heart of the animation community with Teen CTN Animation, Film & Design Summer Camp. This summer camp is held in an inspirational gallery/studio environment over the course of 6 weeks and was created for young artists, who are already showing an interest in, or who might have potential for a career in animation. In a conservatory setting and taught from an artist point of view, this camp will total 90 hours and be held twice a week over six weeks. This camp is designed specifically to give young creators the tools and connections they need through presentations, live demonstrations, hands-on experience, and problem-solving exercises that are critical to building the creative thinking mind and skill set needed to enter the world of animation.
Lectures introduce students to the history of animated works, both 2D and 3D, and workshops are selected to coax students out of their comfort zone where they can hone new skills and explore what it takes to develop stories, characters and worlds. The program is designed to open young artists' minds to the vast possibilities of animation and to help them develop a richer and more impactful portfolio of work suitable for college application.
Special guest industry professionals will be guide students through this amazing program as they experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to join this community and to generate the work necessary to propel them in either their creative careers or college application portfolios. Followed with a Certificate of Completion and their work being featured in a final live review open house event.
Having the ability to meet and learn from industry professionals in a privileged mentored approach is at the core of this camp. When this camp is completed the relationships made and the community joined will live on beyond the end date. An artist is an artist for the rest of their life and this community is always there to help.
