Renowned Animator/Illustrator, Peter Adamokos is offering limited engagement Animation and Children’s Book Illustration classes. There are only a few spaces left for twice/weekly classes that are available through the Ottawa School of Art.
The courses start in September 2012, with a late registration cutoff of September 28. Each course runs thirteen weeks with the classes focusing on practical animation. For those who are seeking a career in Animation, Multimedia, Gaming, Apps, Film or Television then here is your chance to learn from one the Pioneers in the field.
The course has been a great springboard for preparing a professional portfolio to submit to companies or schools. You will learn all animation disciplines including storyboards, character design and character development. Peter will use current works and original animation artwork from Disada's large collection.
The second course is titled "Children's Book Illustration". It too is
a weekly course for three months and has in the past when offered
attracted both published and non-published authors. It deals with
writing, publishing and marketing as well as illustration.
Both classes are held at the school in the Byward Market in the
evening or Sunday afternoons. For more information see the Ottawa
School of Art website or to register online at www.Artottawa.ca or in
person at the school itself. The fee is $250 for the thirteen week
