Animation & Production Design
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Animation incorporates both the visual and performing arts. Students learn the fundamentals of producing an animation: from using stop motion and single cell drawings, to creating models and objects and erasing drawings, to using CGI and other techniques to create a world. The software and hardware covered includes DragonFrame, MAYA, Adobe After Effects, Premier, Photoshop, laser cutting for silhouettes and forms, green screen areas, multi-plane set ups, copy stands, and motion tracks. Subjects used as catalysts for the animations range from current affairs, narratives, to poems, short stories, or visual stimuli. Students are encouraged to consider their work in a wide historical context as they work to master technical developments. Students, at times, draw on and combine their work in other areas when creating advanced projects, whether music, Chinese, French, philosophy, biology, drama, or other visual arts areas. The emphasis is on exploration, bringing life to mundane objects, and giving a voice to a drawing, an image, an inanimate object. At the end of each term there is a public showing of the final animations from each class. Recent graduate schools students were accepted into include: Cal Arts, Royal College of Art, London, University of Southern California, University of South Wales, UK, University of Edinburgh, UK. Projection Design Projection design reaches across the visual arts, drama, music, and dance. Designs and projections are developed to alter a space, bring in more information to a theatre production or act as a texture for surfaces. Students use live manipulated footage, previously created footage, and project on a variety of surfaces and spaces. The software Isadora, QLab, and various editing software are used. Set Design Set/production design is anchored in the drama program and gives students the opportunity to learn the basics of designing for a performance, as well as opportunities to design student- and faculty-directed productions. Additionally, students have created puppet shows range from small, one-person events to much larger affairs.

Visual Arts
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Bennington College was the first in the country to put the arts at the center of a liberal arts education, and one that has long embraced—for over 80 years—the idea that art can shape our way of thinking about everything, from aesthetics and philosophy and literature to mathematics and environmental activism and community development. Taught by practicing professionals accomplished in their fields, Bennington’s visual arts program provides students with a firm grounding in the creative process. As students move from introductory to advanced courses, they develop their own techniques, methods of investigation, conceptual thinking, and understanding of what it means to be a creative practitioner. They are encouraged to explore opportunities across a broad range of media, while examining contemporary creative practice and its connections to the history of art. The Helen Frankenthaler ’49 Visual Arts Center makes up half of Bennington’s 100,000+ square-foot creative complex, and houses expansive teaching studios, digital labs, workshops, and seminar spaces that support the program. It is an inspiring facility full of light and activity—open 24 hours a day. Students can be found there at all hours—creating new work in their studios, gathering for critiques, collaborating. During Field Work Term, students work in a wide range of creative spaces including artists’ studios, galleries, non-profit art organizations, design firms, production houses, and many other internships that offer new perspectives and extraordinary work experiences. In their junior year, students are also eligible to apply for the College’s Museum Fellows Term, in which they spend five months living in New York City; gain professional work experience at a major cultural institution; visit exhibitions and study multiple aspects of the art world with Bennington faculty; and meet artists, curators, and other arts and culture leaders. Students from the visual arts continue their work through graduate studies, set up studios, open galleries, become curators and begin their own practices.
