Team Turnip have been animating and teaching since 2009.
We create vibrant environments that inspire and allow our pupils, both young and old, to become amazing artists.
As artists and animators, we have a history of producing animation for television, mobile phones, online platforms and computer games.
At our workshops we inspire the next generation of artists – our workshops in animation, manga drawing, cartoon drawing, digital art, life drawing and more have encouraged participants across South Wales, Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Bristol and beyond to develop their skills and reach their goals.

Our pupils are our greatest achievement.
