SVA’s Pre-College Program is designed for high school students who want to enhance their creative skills, learn more about a particular field of art, develop a portfolio and experience the challenges and triumphs that exist at one of the most dynamic colleges.
Animation majors at SVA are skilled artists and storytellers who come to understand the mechanics of movement through a solid foundation in drawing, narrative development and principles of animation. The purpose of this Pre-College program is for students to gain a basic understanding of the 2D animation production process, from learning the foundations of drawing to creating digital animation through the Adobe Animate pipeline. Students will begin with an introduction to both drawing and animation in the first week, moving to study the intersection between animation and storytelling in the second week. The program will conclude with a focus on how to prepare an animation portfolio for college admission. Please note: Pre-College courses may include the use of nude models. Course curriculum and faculty are subject to change.
