Sketch Jam

Unfortunately, we were unable to safely hold the Jam this year. Instead, we protected each other, our loved ones and our community by following public health guidance and remaining socially distant. At the very heart of the Jam is that physical chemistry that ya only get in person, so no online Jams on the horizon. It's not a SKETCH JAM, if we're not all together.
When it is safe for everyone, to do so in person.

What is Sketch Jam?
It’s an in-person drawing event, consisting of a character harvest during the afternoon and meet up at a pub at the end of the day. The Jammy challenge usually takes place after 6pm. Jam’s take place every January, at the start of the semester. A great way to start to the Winter semester!

Why we Jam?
Sketch Jam is a great opportunity to draw with peers, professors, alumni and other animation and illustration professionals for the day, and hang out for the evening in a casual setting. If you're an animation or Illustration student starting in January, it's a perfect opportunity to hang out with new friends, create some history - Not to mention the networking opportunity it presents.

Sometimes we just ride the subway and harvest – you get the idea.

The winner receives the much-coveted Jammy award! 

It is now that individuals responsibility to continue the tradition dating back to 2004, and deliver a challenge of their own at the next Jam.

Sketch Jam is all about having some fun drawing and hanging out with friends and making new ones both at Seneca and in the industry we are all a part of. 

You should come out and play one of these days!

The last Sketch Jam was held on 01 | 25 | 20
I'm always excited to see everyone out for this yearly tradition!

In an effort to be more inclusive of the incoming January AFD, ANI and ILS students in order that they may ALL enjoy the community, fun and benefits connected with Sketch Jam.  
The Jam is always held in the third week of the new year in order to better ensure that new students are well settled in and EVERYONE can fully participate. What a great way to start the new year, all together!!

The much coveted Jammy award !.. 

** In order to ensure full commitment from each Jammy winner to fully participate in, and continue this long standing tradition, only current Seneca students or Seneca Alumni may be awarded The Jammy.
