following three summer schools in 2018:
· Animation for Beginners
· Comics
· Classical Drawing

These are well-tested formats for a shorter period of stay and would be perfect to draw inspiration from.
Now, I would suggest that we put together a unique, and to you, exclusive summer school programme, where your students will have two weeks full workshop programme and one week of travelling and experiencing Danish famous locations and companies, i.e. Copenhagen, Aarhus, LEGO, Grundfos, Tivoli etc. Travelling is a great way to expand your knowledge and learn in life.
The study programme at our institution could be one of the following topics, which will be specifically designed to match your expectations, the student's skills and ambitions:

· 2D ANIMATION (learn the basics of animation, make a moving character)
· CREATIVE LEARNING WITH ANIMATION (new methods for learning in schools, high schools and universities, develop learning material)
· ANIMATED DOCUMENTARY (telling cultural, local, personal stories through moving images, cinematography and the arts, make a small animated production)
· APPLIED ANIMATION (Animation and graphics in campaigns, marketing, functional purposes, design animation concepts)
· VIRTUAL REALITY TECHNOLOGIES (learn about new and innovative projects that use animation and VR tools and environments, design concepts for VR experiences)
· CLASSICAL DRAWING (boost drawing and sketching skills, make a portfolio of life and still drawings)
· WORLDBUILDING (how to design the details around a great story, storyline, environment, characters, create a concept for a game, film, TV-series)
· IP-DEVELOPMENT (learn from the digital industry, intellectual property rights, commercialisation, make a business concept for a film, game or TV-series)

A suggestion would be to develop two consecutive programs of each three weeks in July and August, in two groups (A and B) each with 20-25 participants, This to ensure that each student will have a high-quality education, and enough time with each teacher and supervisor within the programme.
