Put down your pegbars and pencils, because this class is about learning animation the modern way. Students will dive head first into a series of projects specially designed to get you animating fast. Starting with the foundation, we will get an introduction to Adobe Animate CC and learn about the principles of motion. Students will practice being an animation clean up artist, design their own animation friendly characters, and build a walk cycle. This class will introduce students to basic 2D rigs (IE: Symbols), and we’ll learn to combine these new tools with traditional animation techniques. We will go over the process for finishing animation, including inking, coloring and even lighting. In the final project, students will animate their own short loop. After completing this course, students can take the 2D Animation Essentials course.

Absolutely amazing teacher!! I couldn’t have asked for a better class!
I had no previous knowledge in animation and now after the course I’m able to create a short animation by myself!
As an amateur animator it’s hard to pick tools you want to stick with, so seeing a professional workflow and how they use software and tools was very eye-opening.
