Drawing Club Returns with Simone Giampaolo

Drawing Club is back, with a special guest tutor.

On Tuesday 29th January at 4.30pm Escape Studios welcomes Aardman director Simone Giampaolo, who will be leading Tuesday's class.

Even if you can barely draw a stick figure - come along and get stuck in. Drawing club is for beginners as well as experts, so don't be shy.

Our Studio Assistants, including Drawing Club supremo Steve Lall, will be on hand to lead the class, presenting drawing challenges such as quick gesture drawings to capture a fast pose.

What is Drawing Club?
Drawing Club at Escape Studios
Drawing Club is all about drawing - still an important part of the animator's toolkit.  Being able to capture a pose, or - better yet - a series of poses, is an important skill to master, as it helps the animator to plan their work.

It's also an important skill to be able to do rough storyboard drawings, to be able to cut a rough storyboard animatic.

Thumbnails
Animators often create small, rough sketches or "thumbnail drawings" to help figure out how the shot is going to work out.

These drawings are like miniature storyboards, used to plan out a shot or sequence.

Where and When?

Drawing club takes place every Tuesday afternoon in the basement at 190 High Holborn from 4.30pm until 5:30pm.

Not all all. Drawing Club welcomes students at all skill levels, including beginners.

How much does it cost?
