Animation Draw: Call for Artists

Animation Draw is like a game of “tag” for artists, encouraging beginners to learn animation by drawing more simply, and challenging professionals to continue where another artist left off. The result is short animated film with a variety of styles compiled by ASIFA-Atlanta.

We're seeking animation instructors to lead the workshops, and creative volunteers to help before and during the workshop. Post workshop, there are opportunities for professional animators, voice talents, musicians and editors.

Please help spread the word, and feel free to reach out to Fatimah Abdullah with any questions or suggestions!
