Creative Design

SJIC Creative Design classes give students a strong foundation in the ways computers bring visual ideas to life. Movies are just the beginning, these skills are used in medical imaging, biology, architecture and any field that connects conceptual ideas with objects in the physical world. SJIC offer classes at all levels with advanced learning and open-ended work time sessions.

SJIC invites students to explore, discover and create. Skilled instructors coach kids of the fundamental principles of animation, including squash and stretch, follow-through and secondary action, along with teach techniques and methods used by professional animators using lighting, settings and camera angles.

The SJIC approach is one of individual and collaborative learning as we teach the workflow process from pre-rigged models to fully animated stories. Animation features such as automated walk-cycles, pose editing, non-linear (NLA) movement and sound are all covered. Students also learn to use rigging tools for painting, mirroring and more.

SJIC 3D Design classes teach students how to create 3D models and sculpt characters, machines and vehicles using complex modeling techniques. It starts with learning the fundamentals of character design and rigging then progresses to the development of original 3D props, set pieces and characters.

It\’s not all about the software, SJIC coaches children on how animation can be used to tell a story and key cinematography techniques used by professionals, such as lighting for atmosphere and emotion. It\’s also not only movies and cinema. The use of 3D Modeling is used across industries and it provides a crucial step between the ideas in our head and the objects in the physical world.
