AniMissions Seminar Update
Spring is in the air, cherry blossoms are blooming, and we are gearing up for our second AniMissions Seminar, which kicks off in exactly three weeks! The AniMissions Seminar is an intensive, online training program for missionaries who want to learn how to use art and animation to share Jesus across cultures. This is accomplished through pre-recorded lectures, live Zoom meetings, and a chat program called Discord.
A Few Changes
After successfully running the first AniMissions Seminar last fall, we asked our staff and students for feedback, which was overwhelmingly positive. There were some helpful suggestions, though, and we are implementing some changes to improve the experience.
Firstly, we decided that the program was too short, and so we are are extending it from six weeks to seven. This allows us to expand a few topics, while giving the students a little more breathing room to complete homework. We are adding more material to the Animation Bootcamp course, and adding some new content on character design to our Design course.
Secondly, we will be adding new daily art devotionals to the seminar, thanks to the leader of the Children’s Books for Missions (CBM) school that just finished, who is graciously sharing this valuable resource with the other Campfire online seminars. Each devotional is about ten minutes and will connect some aspect of art and the Bible.
“The AniMissions Seminar is a great starting point to getting involved in a unique, creative way of reaching the lost.”
As of this writing, we have seven students signed up from five countries, but the application deadline has now been moved to April 15, so there are still two weeks left to join. We have a talented team of coaches and instructors this year, two of whom were students in the last seminar. The AniMissions Seminar is a great starting point to getting involved in a unique, creative way of reaching the lost. Why not consider applying today?
