Introducing Teen CTN!
Written by Rin Jones, Communications Manager
The Creative Talent Network has been recognized as an official consultant to the Burbank Unified School District with its brand new outreach program entitled Teen CTN! This program is being brought to you from the same minds behind the CTN Animation eXpo, and it will launch officially at their Road Trip event from April 14-15. The Creative Talent Network's mission is to introduce teens to professional creative avenues and help to build their unique career roadmap.
Teen CTN takes the form of specialized classes and events intended to educate the future generations of visual artists in the animation, visual effects, and video game industries. Classes include introductions to the latest equipment and software, instructional lectures, and one-on-one sessions with some of animation’s greatest artists.
