Drawing at the Museum

On a recent Animation Portfolio Workshop class session held in the Royal Ontario Museum, APW instructors Myke Bakich and Bahador Merpouya demonstrate drawing exercises and ideas to our students.
These visits have long been a staple of the APW and have benefited from the newly designed spaces and more display areas in the newly renovated and redesigned ROM.
Photos are by former APW student Iven Simonetti.
