Intro to Animation Class (COMING SOON!)


David Gilde and Randy Emberlin instructors.

The Introduction to Animation class offers a first look at how to create animated films. Students start by drawing simple lines and shapes that move but quickly advance towards “acting that is drawn”. Exciting interactive lessons were designed to build technical skills as well as unlock personal creativity. Macromedia’s Flash software is the primary tool used in the program.
