Ms.Gray is one of the best teachers I've ever had. She was a mentor and a friend. She actually cared about my understanding, not just the homework. I'd recommend her classes to anyone!

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.

Eric has experience with map animation that gives him insight into how to help me with my particular project and the specific help with animation that I need.

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!
JeM
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.

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.
