Teen CTN Animation and Design Fall Classes

Animation and Design Master Academy 
Beginning Fall  2018, middle school, high school and home-schooled artists are invited to explore having a career in animation and design. 
Put your artist child or your creative self at the heart of the animation community with Teen CTN Fall Classes. These Fall Classes are held in an inspirational gallery/studio environment over the course of 6 weeks and was created for young artists ages 10 and up who are already showing an interest in or who might have a potential for a career in animation. In a conservatory setting and taught from an artist point of view. Designed specifically to give young creators the tools and connections they need through presentations, live demonstrations, hands-on experience while rotating around separate work areas combined with problem-solving exercises that are critical to building the creative thinking mind and powerful skill set needed to enter the world of animation.
Led by Tristan Marx a talented animator student will get an in-depth look into the animation industry like never before. They will  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. 
Having the ability to meet and learn from industry professionals in a privileged mentored approach is at the core of these classes. When these classes have 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.
About Us: Our goal is to design and implement sustainable and growing programs which have a distinctive and direct positive impact on student participation and learning in the fields of animation, comic books, video games, and filmmaking.  An emphasis on high quality and strong curricular relevance and 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 reach over time and live on beyond the program end date. CTN’s core competency in this field is their direct connection with the largest group of key influencers in the animation, visual efx and video game industries.
