  • Duration: 3 sessions of 2 hours each

 In this extended SKINS 7th Gen Character Design workshop our curriculum was adapted to assist in the second phase of The Black Community Resource Centre’s (BCRC) project, Where They Stood: A Historical Account of the Evolution of Black-Anglo Montreal. The first phase of this project was an initiative created to engage English-speaking Black youth in the conception of a book detailing the history of Montreal’s Black-Anglo population. The second phase of this project is centered around the creation of animated shorts inspired by chapters of the book from phase one. Participants were taught the basics of character design and digital painting in Photoshop.
