Paving the way for young animators

CORDILLERA School of Digital Arts (CSDA) is ready for the summer!

Daryl Augusto Guzman, assistant trainer, is ready to inspire young animators in short courses in hand drawn, basic 2D digital animation and advance 2D digital animation.

The 23-year-old will be handling summer programs for kids starting from those aged 5 to 10 to make summer fun and impart important life skills for future careers.

Daryl will be teaching traditional animation which roots itself in the simple doodles children are akin to create and in turn teach them the lifelike animated cartoons. Rough drawings will be transformed into animated characters right before the eyes of the summer trainees who will be guided and led to the amazing world of animation in just six short weeks, aiming to ignite a passion for the digital arts and instill basic principles they can use in the future.
