Sony Pictures Media Arts Program (SPMAP)
October 2020 - June 2021
We invite you to sign up for the Sony Pictures Media Arts Program (SPMAP), a free 30-week after-school program offered through a partnership between the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, CalArts, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. This program is for students ages 11-17. This art and animation class explores topics such as the principles of animation, animation history, comics, storyboarding, story development, character design, world building, stop motion, video creation, and much more! Each class is staffed by a team of 4-5 instructors and has the capacity for 20-30 students.
All class meetings will take place online via Zoom and Google Sites. Students can access the classes free of charge. Each of our 6 class sites follows a different schedule. Choose the one that works best for you! We may resume in-person classes in the Spring, depending on public health guidelines.
