Learn to make your drawings come alive! Whatever you decide, whether to begin with basic exercises in movement, or to plot out your own story from scratch to final video output, I can guide you through all the steps needed to produce animation. Making cartoons is never easy, but if you have persistence of vision and don't mind hard work, this is for YOU! Learn to 'See What You're Looking At' and discover the story YOU want to tell.
Whether your interest is traditional or digital art, I work with you to draw out your highest potential.
Please see some of my work on my profile page.

Ruth was amazingly helpful. She was clear knowledgeable and a great communicator. She was able to solve all my issues and answer all my questions. I highly recommend her as a teacher for illustration
Claire
My 1st animation lesson with Ruthie was a BLAST! She had me share my project ideas in writing before we met so she had a sense of what I wanted to work on, and helped me clarify my vision. Even though I’m a beginner at animation, Ruthie used her expertise and wonderful teaching style to help me learn some basic skills with a new program so that I can try things on my own. I can’t wait for my next lesson! Thank you Ruthie!

A gem of an instructor. Knowledgeable, pleasant and willing to teach. She first inquired what I wanted to accomplish and followed through with it. This had to be the best instructional hour I've had in Photoshop.

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).

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.
