After School Animation

Date
Every Wed, Mar 6–Apr 24 | 4–6pm
Location
Learning Center

Successful animators have a comprehensive understanding of basic animation techniques and principles. During this eight-week course, each class will focus on one of these core concepts in relation to working traditionally with pencil and paper. Budding animators will develop a strong foundation, build upon their knowledge of art and animation, and hone their unique skills. Continuing students should arrive prepared to work on their own project during class, and can expect to learn additional animation skills throughout the course as well.

All materials will be provided for students by the instructor. Students are encouraged to have a sketchbook of their own for drawing outside of class.
