Draw for Life is an initiative that was developed by Animation SA in partnership with Triggerfish studious, the Animation School, and Pascap. The project’s aim is to give talented youth from Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of drawing for animation and expose them to the animation industry and the available opportunities. As a part of this project, selected learners have the opportunity to participate in a fully-sponsored 10 session Digital Drawing and Painting course delivered by the Digital Canvas Academy in Cape Town. During the course, our learners will participate in modules on digital tools (Photoshop), digital sketching, color theory and digital painting, and tones in digital painting in computer equipped classrooms.
Art education is an area that is often neglected and under-funded in schools, especially in schools that are already stretched for resources. Pascap's learners come from disadvantaged communities that often don’t have the resources available to allow them to explore art as a creative outlet. They miss out on the many benefits of art education, which include: sharpened senses, emotional development, critical thinking, and happiness. These skills not only improve performance in other subjects but also enrich life experiences.
Because of Draw for Life, talented learners from underprivileged areas can take Digital Academy’s Digital Drawing & Painting course to refine and expand their talents.
How will your donation help?
We need your help in giving these gifted learners the opportunity to explore and develop their artistic abilities. We are seeking funding for transportation, to pick up learners from their homes and deliver them to the school, as well funding for food to cover breakfast and lunch.
