The Skatrix – DesignTO Youth, Animation Workshop Series


Screen Shot 2020-02-08 at 1.46.38 PMCollaborating with students from Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF), ‘The Skatrix’ is public screening of animated shorts that marks the first edition of DesignTO Youth, a new program that provides youth with access to creative disciplines and professionals. Working together, DesignTO and OSF craft a program that teaches art and design skills through hands-on workshops, talks, studio tours, and mentorship.
Through this program, OSF students attended guest talks by game designer Rob Elsworthy and artist Zeesy Powers, and toured the pre-production animation studio House of Cool, where they learned about the intensive design process behind an animated series. The students then participated in an animation bootcamp led by new media artist and educator Tommy Truong, learning about stop-motion animation, rotoscoping, sound, and editing, to self-produce their own animated shorts.
