Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the methods that animators, concept artists and illustrators use daily in creating  animated movies,illustrations and more.
I will assign a small project based on the weekly topic.
Paper or sketchbook
and your imagination
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This course will be participation based.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the characters that may be created such as pirates, space fighters and more could have weapons. All of  the character topics will be listed prior to the class, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
