Beginner Class Information

Completely new to animating and/or Photoshop? Don't worry; in this class, we cover both! We recommend taking this class if you're brand new to animation as a medium with little to no prior experience with Photoshop (some experience with digital art is encouraged, but not required). Beginner students will learn about the basics of using Photoshop for animation and using a drawing tablet. Projects will be light and focused on fundamental principles. All classes are taught by Lucia Barrett.

Intermediate Class Information

Further develop your animation skills! The intermediate course will cover more advanced topics and we'll have the opportunity to spend more time on each project to discuss the finer details of timing and movement. Some experience with animation, Photoshop, and/or digital illustration is strongly recommended. Or if you've previously taken the Beginner class, then you're ready to take on the next level! All classes are taught by Lucia Barrett.
