Drawing and Animation
Drawing is an important and valuable part of the animation filmmaking process and key to developing visual thinking. Skill in drawing enables students to visualise ideas and to create order and sequence to communicate their ideas via the screen and other media.
The Animation department runs a series of animation specific workshops, which focus on developing skills in drawing movement, sequential thinking, visualising thoughts, memories, and the potential development of new approaches to drawing.
Most of these innovative drawing classes take place in the RCA's Drawing Studio, which is a college-wide resource. The Drawing Studio provides a diverse range of additional courses, workshops, classes and events that are open to all students and staff. The space is also available for students’ personal projects, such as improvising scenes from their films, working on a large scale or testing new techniques.
All Drawing Studio equipment is supplied and all materials (for use in the Drawing Studio) are free to students and staff.
