Vanarts Pixar Artists’ Masterclass 2012 Tour

VanArtsVanArts is proud to present a Masterclass in Animation & Story Development, featuring instructors Matthew Luhn (Head of Story) and Andrew Gordon (Animator), both from Pixar Animation Studios. The 2012 Class Tour begins on June 22 in Chicago and ends in Vancouver on September 28th.

This exceptional 2-day class offers participants an extremely rare and exciting opportunity to learn from the industry’s top talent. It provides you with the tools needed to help create your own stories and feature-quality animation, plus offers a great opportunity to meet and network with others in the industry.

Following on the heels of last year’s completely sold-out sessions in the USA and Canada, the 2012 Masterclass Tour will be stopping in these five North American locations exclusively:

  • June 22-23: Chicago – register
  • June 29-30: Seattle – register
  • July 13-14: Miami – register
  • July 27-28: Toronto
  • September 28-29: Vancouver

Tickets for Toronto and Vancouver are not yet on sale, but you can sign up to receive sales alerts. If you have an interest or aspirations in this field, you definitely won’t want to miss this event.

This masterclass would be of interest and great value to a wide range of participants:

    • cartoonists
    • script & story writers, story tellers
