Pre-College Summer Programs
Hello! I'm a high-schooler intending to pursue animation in college. I have been looking to several pre-college summer programs and I am very interested in attending one this summer. I was wondering if anyone who has experienced one of these programs could tell me how helpful they found it? How much did you learn, did it assist you in college applications/scholarships, etc. I am mainly looking into SVA and MICA at the moment. SVA is an issue because their animation program is already full, but there are spaces available in their cartooning class that also appeal to me. MICA seems very nice but they do require a portfolio for application. I'm rather self-conscious about my art skills so I do doubt that I could get in, especially considering they don't specify what they look for in a portfolio.
So, yeah! Any advice or recommendations would be really helpful. Thank you so much!
