Introduction to Animation




Learn the basics of animating from home using a smartphone, pencils, paper, and other common household art materials like pens, markers, and crayons.  

There is no need for any high-tech programs and techniques, just a willingness to learn how to make drawings and shapes come to life! Students who are interested in adding animation to their own websites, social media sites, and adding a new skill to their repertoire would benefit from this course.  

Projects may include: animating text, character gestures, movement, creating animated GIFs, etc.
