Learn animation from an expert in the field with an animating career spanning 20 years
Learn to make your drawings come alive! Whatever you decide, whether to begin with basic exercises in movement, or to plot out your own story from scratch to final video output, I can guide you through all the steps needed to produce animation. Making cartoons is never easy, but if you have persistence of vision and don't mind hard work, this is for YOU! Learn to 'See What You're Looking At' and discover the story YOU want to tell. Whether your interest is traditional or digital art, I work with you to draw out your highest potential. Please see some of my work on my profile page.
About Ruth E.

As an Emmy award winning animation artist with 27 years in the animation industry, I founded the non profit, EDU DESIGNS, to bring the arts back into schools. Check out my blog there for more information. I created the first Art Textbook to reference Math Standards to help teachers without an art background share skills with students that expand their ability to see what they are looking at. My art presentations, videos and lessons help thousands of teachers and students improve character development and increase motivation for learning. Stories are a powerful vehicle to impact a child's mind and develop positive character. In the animation industry I brought other people's stories into being. Now I mentor younger artists to learn the skills required to bring their dreams into reality.

Ruth is a great teacher! She’s motivating and kind. She helped me to move forward with my desire to jump into animation and for creating a software app with animation. It doesn’t matter what level you are. She will meet you where you are. My goal was met. She gave me a great starting point and resources. Thank you Ruth!
