I can teach a broad range of disciplines including handdrawn 2D, digital 2D, 3D, stopmotion, and others. If you're merely interested in the design aspects, that's fine, too. I have a comprehensive knowledge of 3D techniques and digital art workflows, and I can tailor the course to meet those needs, as well.

I have been learning/teaching animation since 2002. I am familiar with traditional, stop-motion, Flash, Toon Boom, After Effects, basic 3D Modeling, basic 3D animation, and experimental. With my husband as a freelance animator I am exposed to working in the industry on a daily basis. Animation is a passion of mine that I love to share with others!

Although I took only one lesson with Jessica, she gave me a terrific foundation that is now allowing me to then go forward and learn more on my own. I will likely schedule additional lesson with her once I get stuck and need more personalized help. Lessons with her are a great way to get introduced to or brush up on Photoshop. Yay, Jessica!

I had some very specific questions and design concerns that Jessica was able to answer clearly and in a manner that allowed note-taking and testing on my part, which is of course the point of on-line learning. She's a very thoughtful and thorough instructor and I will be taking more classes with her going forward.

I had a great first lesson today! Jessica was very thorough but also made it easy to understand for someone with no experience. Her teaching style is down to earth with very open dialogue - she not only went through the basics but touched base and made sure to cover aspects and relate to things in which i set as my goals. I am looking forward to the rest of my classes with Jessica!

The 5 star rating isn't an overstatement. Austin is seriously the best instructor/teacher/mentor you could ask for. He is extremely motivated to help people learn and understand. He has a ton of passion for video and graphic design work. He has expert knowledge of the subject and is extremely thorough when teaching. 100 percent recommend.

Austin Faure has taught me such valuable skills in the creative industry, Including: Film Production, Graphic Design, and Photography. He is such an awesome teacher and a really personable guy. With his help, I now work for my favorite company doing what I love. (Staff Photographer for Hurley). THANKS AUSTIN! I definitely recommend him. Best teacher i've ever had, hands down.
