What you will do
5 hour course
Working with simple materials and your smartphone, Leo will guide you through the process of erasure animation in charcoal. Drawing, capturing, erasing and re-drawing, you will make a series of ephemeral frames to produce your own moving image.
The week will start with an introduction to inspiring charcoal animations, as well as process and technical set up. You will then jump straight into experimental mark making before capturing a time-lapse charcoal drawing as the first shot of your final piece. Each day, you create another shot exploring mood, character or action. At the end of the week, you will have a short silent film ready to share online, should you wish.
Each day ends with a delicious vegetarian lunch (included) and a chance to share your work in progress with the group.
No experience is necessary, but you will need to bring a smartphone and charger.

About your host, Minerva Workshop
The Minerva Workshop is located in Kentish Town in North London, in an old Victorian Warehouse full of creative businesses, and run by painter Lottie Cole.
The Minerva Workshop hosts masterclasses taught by artists and artisans as well as regular weekly classes. All the classes are taught by professional full-time artists and artisans, who love to share their knowledge and skill.
The classes are open to all levels, unless stated, and kept to a limited number of no more than 12. This keeps the classes intimate and allows for everyone to have sufficient help and encouragement in a friendly atmosphere.
As well as learning and expanding skills our goal is to send participants away refreshed and invigorated by sharing a creative experience.
How to find us: Minerva Workshop is 4 minutes walk from Kentish Town Tube Station. We are located at street level on Bartholomew Road, and the doors have our name written on them. Please give us a knock and we'll open up for you. For the Class: Please bring an extension cable if you have one, and your own phone charger. For Lunch: A simple vegetarian lunch will be provided and refreshments throughout. However please let us know if you would prefer to bring your own lunch (as often students prefer their own menu due to dietary preferences)
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
