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.

Traditional, stop motion, and 3d! Learn keyframing, tweening, embellishment, timing, scene composition, rigging, phoneme/voice syncing. Learn to animate with free apps on your smart device, professional software suites from Autodesk & Adobe, or the old fashioned way with pencil and paper.

Celina was knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. She took an interest in figuring out what my daughter was familiar with and what next steps would make sense in terms of learning more about animation.

Do you want to learn how to animate – or take your existing animation to the next level? Do you want your animation critiqued by a master animator with decades of experience? Or do you want to polish your skills by covering all the core principles of movement, regardless of what kind of animation you do? Then you've found the right place!

In the digital age many people tend to think that if you learn ‘animation software’ then you will automatically become an accomplished animator. However, nothing is further from the truth! Computers can only make things easier for you to do, once you know what you need to do. But if you have no skills or knowledge to bring to the computer, it will not fill in the blanks for you. So, regardless of what kind of animator you want to be – i.e. 2D, 3D, Claymation, Stop-frame or whatever - you absolutely HAVE to learn the ‘core principles of movement’ BEFORE you study the technology.

I have been at the top level of professional animation for many ...

Tony White has the patience to watch inspired animators grow. His ideas feed into our concepts we have and he is the adviser that guides us to how our ideas become a reality on paper or on a monitor. He has assisted me to where I am today.

If I could be instructed by Tony White again and again, I'd never say no.
