Private Animation Teacher

Want to learn how to create stunning 2D and 3D animations, digital designs, visual effects, or other forms of computer graphics? Whether you're an absolute beginner or seasoned professional, I've got the experience and diverse skillset to help you succeed.

I am a 2D/3D animator & designer who has been creating computer graphics professionally for over a decade, and work full time as a Senior Animator and Director of Animation. My regular work includes animation and motion graphics, 3D modeling and rendering, compositing, visual effects, graphic design, and film/audio editing.

My work can be seen in museums across North America including the National World War II Museum, the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico, the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, and the Canadian History Hall in Quebec. I have also created animation for documentaries such as the Emmy-nominated "Birth of a Movement" and "Give Me the Banjo," narrated by Steve Martin.

I am passionate about teaching

My son is dyslexic and Eric is so patient with him. He's learning things I never thought would be possible and enjoying everything about his time with Eric! As a parent, working with Eric is very easy. He cares about his students and really wants them to enjoy their time with him. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher/ tutor!

Eric was helpful. I had a quick intro in to what I needed to know for my project and what tools would be most useful.

It would have been ideal, if I had known ahead of time that he was not well-versed on all features of Adobe Creative Cloud, but at least I know what is possible with his expertise.

Otherwise Eric conveyed a professional competence and was easy to talk to.

Private Animation Teacher

I've created many animations in the context of video games as a professional artist, having worked in ToonBoom, GIMP and Photoshop. I specialize in character animations, mostly humans and animals.

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 Mellon University, and worked for Disney Research for a year and a half.

About Emily

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.

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.

About Katherine
