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.

About Emily S.

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.

Emily has been amazing with my daughter. She is patient and encouraging and has taught her so much in only a few lessons. I've seen my daughter's figure drawing skills grow so much over the past few weeks. I'm even seeing her break out of her comfort zone on her own more often than before she started working with Emily. I was a little wary of online lessons, but they have worked out great and I think actually taken a little pressure off that she might feel doing an in person lesson.

My ten-year-old son, Andrew, has had five lessons with Emily, and they have all been spectacular. She has a great rapport with kids, and helped him improve his drawing skills tremendously. Andrew has always looked forward to his lessons. I highly recommend Emily!

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.
Animation may additionally be done in Adobe After Effects.

I had a great time with Katherine learning different drawing techniques. She was very knowledgeable and was able to adapt each lesson to what I needed to know that week. I really enjoyed our lessons last semester. :)
