Calling all young aspiring animators! Apply now to take part in the 3Dami: After-School 3D Animation Club

Are you aged between 13-18 and always wanted to try 3D animation but not been sure where to start? Interested in learning about the process behind your favourite animated films? Want to get technical with your art? If so, then 3Dami Animation Club is the perfect opportunity for you!

Over a ten-week after-school club, successful applicants will be introduced to the concepts and practice of 3D animation using Blender (a completely free to use 3D modelling and animation application) through a combination of teaching, project work, and feedback from peers and staff.

On week ten, you will have the chance to showcase your achievements to your friends and family, and you will end the course with a selection of work to use in support of future applications and portfolios.

The workshop will run on a weekday evening, from 6pm to 8pm from 19th April 2021 to 2nd July 2021 with a break over half-term holidays. The showcase and celebration evening will take place during the week beginning the 5th of July. All Animation Club participants will be expected to complete 1 hour of homework between each session to prepare for the next class.

Who is this for?

This course is aimed at school/college students just beginning their journey into 3D animation or the use of Blender. It would be ideal for anyone interested in a career in 3D animation and unsure where to start, or those looking to expand their existing artistic skills.

This course will be unsuitable for intermediate or advanced Blender users, or 3D animators.

In order to apply, you must be between 13 and 18 years old on April 1 this year.
