Young & Animated+ is designed for autistic young people, with a smaller class size (up to 4) and 2 tutors, the course provides fun and detailed exploration of digital and stop motion animation whilst providing flexibility to suit participants interests.
This course is run by highly-trained animators and filmmakers who have a wealth of experience tutoring young people of all abilities. Our tutors recognise the importance of attending to individual needs, meaning the group is suitable for those experienced in animation and those curious to make a start. Over the five-week period there will be opportunity for plenty of development and experimentation, as well as time for each participant to complete a personal project.
