This eight-session program will focus on the basic principles of animation that are the foundation of any successful animated film. This course is for beginners and will test your skills. I will be using the Flipbook feature on Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro, but lessons can be followed with any program that allows frame-by-frame drawing such as Flip-a-Clip, etc.
I have always loved cartoons since childhood. They are part art, part science, and part magic trick. After copying characters out of coloring books for years, I learned how flipbooks created the illusions of movement. I have been hooked ever since. In addition to being a Teaching Artist for the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, I work as a Caricature Artist and freelance on cartooning and graphic design projects.
Being a Teaching Artist is important to me because animation is such a huge part of our culture. I love exposing people to how it works and making it accessible for anyone.
