Successful animators have a comprehensive understanding of basic animation techniques and principles. This six-week course focuses on one of these concepts each class by working paper cut outs and using traditional stop motion techniques. Budding animators develop a strong foundation, continue to build their knowledge of art and animation, and hone their unique skills. Continuing students should arrive prepared to work on their own project, learning additional animation skills throughout the course.
This class will be held entirely online using a video conference interface. Students will be expected to have an internet connection, camera, and microphone to communicate with the teacher and other students. Basic materials such as pencils, pens, and paper will be used during the class. Any additional materials needed will be communicated by the teacher.
