Self-Learning

TUMO’s self-learning activities last for two hours and are a fun and interactive way to acquire new skills. Students are supported and encouraged by specialized coaches, and gradually build up their experience to allow them to participate in our Labs.

Workshops

Workshops are run by experts who specialize in the eight fields of skill areas. As the students progress, they meet in small groups for four hours per week, for a duration of four weeks, to create individual or collaborative projects. Each project is published in the student’s portfolio. Moreover, they can also be used for competitions, , festivals, and online publications, etc.

Learning Labs

During the year, students will meet periodically with internationally-acclaimed experts. These meetings will take place during vacation periods and will act as mini-internships.


The TUMO path

At TUMO, students get to design their own learning experience. The TUMO program covers eight different fields of interest, and each student creates his or her own path by selecting three of these disciplines. This new kind of interface is perfectly adapted to adolescents’ interests and results in a course that is tailored to each student.

An idea, a script, a storyboard, actors, cameras, lights, shooting, editing, post-production, and a lot of teamwork: These are the fundamentals of filmmaking!
Students will learn the language of cinema whilst assimilating and practicing every step of the filmmaking process, from creating a storyboard to editing. They will learn how to use a camera, as well as how to use Adobe Premiere software.

Animation is all about fun and hard work. Students will learn to create characters and bring them to life. Learning the principles of animation, they will discover the nature of how we move, talk, and act in different situations. As Glen Keane once said: "Animators are the actors but with the pencil."After passing 3 levels of the animation workshop, students will have a strong base to continue animating and further improving their skills. They can use all of this knowledge in 3D animation, stop motion animation... all types of animation.

Level I Workshop
It’s here that students first become familiar with the history and various types of 2D animation, learning about the principles of animation used by every working animator today. This includes screening examples in anticipation of what teens will soon be creating.
Throughout the remaining workshop sessions, students become fully immersed in learning Toon Boom (the new industry standard) and finally create movement with a character of their own design.

Level II Workshop
It’s during Level 2 that TUMOians discover and learn to utilize additional principles of animation. Throughout this level, the student becomes an animator, learning to communicate their character’s thoughts through their walking style e.g. sad characters walk droopy-like and happy characters with a little pep in their step.

Level III Workshop
This workshop isn't so much about learning animation, as it is about developing their skills as both an animator and a director. Using what they've learned about the animation process and its principles, students will create 10-second animated shorts. Each student will develop their own story and will need to take into account the storyboard, planning their short's individual shots and decide on the overall style of their animation.

Enter a world that is dedicated to creation through our Game Development course!
From studying some legendary games platforms to actually making your own game using Unity, from concept to programming, this course will enable students to dig into their imaginations and create their very own game universes.
Students will learn to use Unity, a powerful piece of software for developing video games, and will create a complete level of their own game.

The music course involves studying different genres, learning a range of classical and electronic instruments, song writing, and more. It’s no secret that in 2018, digital tools are essential to musical creation.

Students can create music using samples, mashups, beat-making, and audio compression.

This course involves discovering different artists and exploring the history of drawing and painting, whist developing one’s own style. Students will learn to master Photoshop and will do lots of drawing by hand to create, shade and color characters. In this course, students are encouraged to draw as much as possible in order to develop their own personal expression.

Students will learn to distinguish different color nuances and use Photoshop to create and color their own characters.

Level two Drawing Workshop

From learning Photoshop and Illustrator to studying 2D graphics, this course teaches students how to communicate through drawing and graphic design.

Students will learn to distinguish different color nuances and use Photoshop to create and color their own characters.

Level two Graphic Design Workshop

3D Modeling is increasingly important in cinema, for making special effects, and in the production of video games. It is also very important in advertising, architecture, medicine, and product design. Everything can be made in 3D – one simply needs to know how to do it.

Students will learn the bases of 3D Modeling and how to work with new tools.

From mobile phones to home appliances and futuristic driverless cars, technology today is all about programming. Nothing is impossible, but where does one start? All you need is a taste for problem-solving, some basic math, and you’re all set.

Students are introduced to programming and HTML, providing them with the tools to create the App of their dreams.

Level two Programming Workshop
