What you will do

5 hour course

Daytime

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.

LeaI learnt so much about Animation both giving me the opportunity to learn how to use the app and technical skill to feto gain confidence in developing the medium. Le LLeLeo was a superb lecturer and communicator. The venue was very good . well equipped and location is convenient. A bit cold but it was one of the coldest days of the year so far! All in all it was an inspiring workshop and given me incentive to develop this medium in the future.

Yesterday at the Minerva Workshop was one of the best days I’ve had in a long while. I took a class in Charcoal drawing Animation taught be the very excellent Leo Crane. Leo is a remarkable teacher and a wonderful facilitator. In no time at all he expelled all my misgivings about my own ability and immediately he had us working in an atmosphere of real excitement and joy. He made the subject which I was honestly quite daunted by, feel so organic and natural to each one of us. It was amazing to experience. In the short space of one day, he had enabled each of us to produce at least five short animations. It was really exciting to see and I strongly recommend Leo’s classes to everyone. I will definitely be returning! Minerva Workshop is a great place. Light airy and with a wonderfully warm atmosphere thanks to Lottie who runs the place with gracious generosity of spirit. She even gave us all a super lunch. I would go back there anytime. I strongly recommend them to everyone!!

I learnt so much in such little time- will definitely continue developing the skills I learnt in this class. Leo was an amazing teacher, he had a lot of patience and taught us some great techniques- and Lottie a wonderful host who provided a lovely lunch spread and endless cups of tea and coffee. I would recommend this class to anyone with an interest in drawing and who wants to see them come alive!

I took the Charcoal animation course with Leo on Sunday. He was fantastic at guiding us through and explaining how to create our animations. There were a wide range of experience and abilities between everyone on the class, Leo was great at navigating between all of us and taking us all along at the same pace. We all finished with a few short animations that we had created and an ability to continue creating them independently. I had a very fun Sunday afternoon with a really lovely group and came out having learnt a new 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.
