MASTERCLASSES + SHORT COURSES /
BRING YOUR CHARACTER SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
Each fall the PICTOPLASMA ACADEMY in BERLIN and MAXICO CITY invites a selected group of international graduate students and young professionals to kick-start their careers as character designers in close collaboration with industry leading artists, filmmakers and producers.
The 8-day intense masterclass is suited for all longing to expand their practise in a specific field related to the creation of characters – whether as illustrators, animation filmmakers, fine artists, or graphic, fashion, and product designers.
The Pictoplasma Academy aims to challenge participants to explore their personal projects right across the media spectrum – from drawing and illustration to sculpture and visual storytelling – and find the right path for their further development.
