Join us for live sketching demos and sales of a variety of items - art prints, coloring books, hand painted postcards and baked goods - all in an effort to raise funds for club activities throughout the year. This club is open to all KSU students and has a mixture of events throughout the year, such as – hosting animation industry professional workshops, 24hr marathon events where students create comic books & animations, life drawing sessions, and networking by attending events with ASIFA Atlanta. The unique prospect of fostering real world experience for resume and portfolio purposes is a major part of student participation in this club. Students will begin pre-production on an animated short film beginning Fall 2017, that when finished in about two years’ time, will be entered into national and international film festivals.
