Animation brings so much life to a character or environment! With 2D or 3D animation we can bring movement and life to your super hero, dancer, action star, butterfly, or anything else you cant think of! Animation is fun for all ages and all levels of artists!

I teach about different types of animation,. I can do lessons on Claymation, Traditional 2D Cartoon Animation, Rotoscoping, Stop-Motion Animation, etc.

2D Cartoon Animation:
Learn the basic principles of 2D Cartoon Animation and the application of those principles in bringing a character to life through the mechanics of motion. Learn how to draw characters and create a walking animation(s) with the help of movement guides.

StopMotion / Claymation:
Students learn to explore the hands-on process of Stop-Motion through setting up characters and sets, using LEGO®s, Clay, and other materials. They would be taking the digital snapshots and putting together/editing their film via computer or Smartphone.

Rotoscoping:
Learn the animation techniques that animators use to mimic motion picture footage, frame by frame, to produce realistic action.

"My experience with this teacher was great! She was very easy to talk to and she was very nice and straight to the point about each of the topics. She also talked about herself and what were my interest and goals that I wanted to get to with her lessons. I just wish that my screen could be shared like hers! So a tip! MAKE SUTE THAT YOU CAN SHARE YOUR SCREEN WITH THE TEACHER BEFORE THE LOSSON STARTS BECAUSE YOU’LL NEED IT... TRUST ME!!!!"
