You'll learn about Adobe Animate CC tools and how to animate. Animate CC works well with other programs too. For these lessons we'll also use Adobe Illustrator to get the best results. The projects will be animation for presentations and for web banners. Their will only be a small amount of coding.
Animation may additionally be done in Adobe After Effects which is also great for video. You may request a specific topic.

Ofir is a great teacher. He works with our 11 year old son who is obsessed with all things 3D, but needed professional guidance to get on the right path in his learning. During the lessons, my son is remarkably quiet. I asked him why - he responded that Ofir seems to address everything he would have inquired about just ahead of time, so it makes the whole learning process all that much more efficient. Ofir has quite a bit of experience teaching so it appears our son is reaping the reward.

I've created many animations in the context of video games as a professional artist. I primarily use Krita and Adobe Animate. I specialize in character animations, mostly humans and animals, but also help students with larger projects such as short films. I've helped students with storyboards, keyframing, background paintings and tips on video editing.

Students may use any animation program they'd like, as long as they have drawing and timeline features. If students are absolute beginners, I recommend downloading Krita or Pencil2D. Krita is great for illustration and animation, Pencil2D is very basic and ideal for absolute beginners. Both Krita and Pencil2D are free.

My goal is to focus on the study of motion and help the student implement their own skills in drawing and observation.
I can also help the student build a portfolio in preparation for college or applying for companies (games, animation studios).

I've graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts from Carnegie ...

Emily continues to be a great tutor for my daughter. She has incredible patience - especially since my daughter loves to chat - and has helped foster a strong passion for digital drawing in my daughter. Emily's skill with the tools makes it easy for my daughter to learn and experiment more on her own as well.
Jacob
Help me understand my flaws in drawing, and show me many pointers on how to improve like body proportions, outlines and how to use software like Krita. Overall was a very good learning experience!!
Allie
My daughter very much enjoyed the class and working with Emily. She learned a lot and is very excited for her next lesson.
