5 WEEK COURSE
Saturdays | 1.30pm – 3.30pm
This animation course is designed to for autistic young people, based on our long running Young & Animated Saturday Club but with a smaller class size of up to 4 and 2 tutors the course provides fun and detailed exploration of digital and stop motion animation.
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.
Interested in joining Young & Animated+? Our Young & Animated course will run for five weeks on Saturdays during term-time. The price is £210, the difference in price to the Young & Animated Saturday Group is due to the reduced class sizes, previous participants of this course have been able to use their direct payments to cover the cost.
