Gnomon – School of Visual Effects, Games and Animation has announced details of this year’s High School Summer Camp: a series of one-week intensive summer training courses for students aged 14 to 18.

The Summer Camp courses give high school students access to Gnomon’s award-winning vocational training. The company was voted School of the Year at 2015’s international CG Student Awards.

Professional training in concept design, modelling, animation and effects
Four separate courses are available, covering drawing techniques, digital painting, digital sculpting and a wide-ranging course on animation, games and visual effects work.

Numbers are capped at 12 for each class, giving students access to more of an instructor’s time. The classes are open to anyone aged 14 to 18, and there are no portfolio or admission requirements.
