Learn more about the animation process using 2D cartoon style puppets, or “animation rigs.” This style of animation is an alternative to hand drawn animation that is used to create many modern cartoons. In this class you will use a pre-constructed 2D puppet to learn how move and animate using Adobe Animate while creating your own story. You will also learn how to lip-sync your character to match dialogue and truly bring your scenes to life!

Animations will be produced digitally using Adobe Animate. You should be comfortable with using digital software and have basic computer skills. Experience with programs in the Adobe Creative Suite is recommended and supplemental videos will be provided to help introduce any students completely new to Adobe and its software.

Class will meet live once a week every Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm. Live meetings will consist of lectures, live demos, group critiques, and open studio time to finish projects.

This course must meet minimum enrollment by February 9th in order to run. Register today!
