*Coordinator: Gail Guth • Sara Taliaferro, GNSI Education Director

We are very excited to announce the GNSI 2016 Education Series 
Workshop…actually TWO, two-day workshops back-to-back (take one, take 
both!)… on digital animation and 3D Illustration, which will be held 
October 27-30 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, at Indiana-Purdue University-Fort 
Wayne (IPFW).

Mandy Root–Thompson will guide you through advanced Adobe AfterEffects® 
animation techniques applied to 2-D illustrations created in Adobe 
Illustrator®; and David Killpack will guide you through 3D illustration 
using zBrush®.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn that borders the 
IPFW campus. The Inn features a large pool, exercise room, an on-site 
restaurant, and complimentary shuttle service to the campus and other 
locations around town.

Fort Wayne is Indiana’s second-largest city and boasts a 
nationally-recognized zoo (open in the evenings during the workshop for 
Halloween trick-r-treating), about a zillion restaurants, numerous 
walking and biking trails, a botanical conservatory (enjoy the Japanese 
Garden exhibit during your stay), a well-stocked art and teacher 
education store only minutes from the hotel, and country singer Chris 
Young at the Coliseum directly across the street! The gorgeous Embassy 
Theater downtown will feature “Bugs Bunny At The Symphony, with the Fort 
Wayne Philharmonic, and the IPFW Music Center will host Halloween 
Spooktacular, again with Philharmonic musicians. A superb library, art 
museum, science museum, and numerous parks are just a few more area 
attractions. Go to for more information.

Look for complete details and registration information coming soon.

We are excited to welcome you to the Heartland!*
