      SOCA High School Workshop - Fall 2019

      Join us for the Fall 2019 High School Workshop Day at the USF School of Creative Arts! Students will participate in one of ten workshops (space is limited in each workshop).  Teachers are also invited to join us for their own workshop series, awarding Professional Growth Points.  Descriptions listed below! STUDENT WORKSHOPS -Digital Animation Workshop: Digital Animation is one of the most exciting and growing art industries today, giving college graduates the opportunity to animate, model, rig and design for video games, movies, and motion graphics. Games and movies have left the television and are now easily accessible on our phones and mobile devises. The industry is continuing to grow and change how people access animation making it more available. This workshop will look at how digital animation has developed and is used through the industry. The students will look at anything from texturing, modeling, and animation.  -Traditional Animation Workshop: Animation is one of the most exciting industries today, placing college graduates in fields ranging from television, film game design, architecture, and medical visualization. Most industries today use some form of computer visualization and art. In the entertainment field alone, what has been generated by computers has revolutionized the face of our culture. In our workshop you will learn the foundations of animation. This workshop will explore the traditional non-computer methods of creating animation. Students will have the opportunity to explore light table animation or stop motion animation. -Sculpting pendants/Charms: In this workshop you will walk away wearing a design of your own. We will look at various pendant designs for inspiration, then sculpt your design in modeling clay, and learn how to make a rubber mold of your design that will help us to transfer your design to a more permanent pendant. After which we will color them and attach them to colorful necklace cords. -Screen-print Monotype and Sequential Images: In this workshop, students will discover the possibilities of the screen-printed monotype. Through the application of watercolor and watercolor crayons directly onto the surface of the screen, students will produce colorful and multilayered images. The printing process allows for multiple impressions to be printed from each screen. Each impression will be slightly different, allowing students to explore sequential images. -Drawing: Whether students are interested in studio fine art, concept design for gaming, or comics and graphic novels, knowing how to draw is an essential skill for creative communication. In this workshop, students will experience a fast-paced introduction to drawing at a professional level. Fundamental drawing techniques will be demonstrated and practiced. All materials are provided. (This course is ideal for students with limited or no experience drawing from direct observation)  -Figure Drawing: Drawing a live figure model from direct observation continues to be an important practice for artists throughout the centuries. This workshop introduces some of the foundational strategies artists use to capture an accurate and expressive depiction of the human form. A clothed figure model will be present for this session and all materials are provided. (This course is ideal for students with at least moderate drawing experience) -Music Technology: Spend the day experiencing the new University of Saint Francis Music Technology Center. Students will work in state-of-the-art recording studios where they will experience the entire process of recording and mixing a song. Students will learn about basic recording techniques and music production using Avid’s Pro Tools and Apple’s Logic Pro X recording software. All students will get hands-on experience with our Neve recording console. Students are welcome to bring their original song ideas, lyrics and instruments with them. A selection of drums, guitars, amplifiers and keyboards will be available at the Music Technology Center.

Students should bring boxes to store their ceramic work. -Illustration: Traditional illustration is back and in a big way. A vast amount of creative work being produced in ad agencies and design shops around the world are utilizing illustration in their client’s work. This workshop will allow students to experiment with various media on paper in the traditional genre.
