Sorry, we are no longer accepting applications for this workshop.

This workshop provides an introduction to animation in Adobe After Effects CC. Participants will work with a free trial version of the software to get to know the interface, set a scene using lighting and filters and create movement using key-frames.

During the first day of the workshop everyone will be guided through the basic processes of the software step by step. On the second day participants can apply these skills to their own ideas and will use their own artwork as a starting point. The participants will bring in a drawing or painting and make it come to life by animating elements of the image.

Participants will need their own laptop and a basic knowledge of Photoshop is essential for this workshop.

As part of the RHA School Access Programme, two free places on RHA School Workshops, Courses, Life-drawing sessions and Masterclasses will be offered. One to an artist currently enrolled at any of the third level art colleges in Ireland. The second free place will be offered to an artist of merit at any stage of their career. This additional free place has been made available through the generosity of an anonymous donor. Artists and art students who wish to be considered for these places should include a CV, three images of current practice and a cover letter providing a short statement indicating how they would benefit from attending any of the RHA School activities as part of their online application.
