Instructor: Amy MacDonald
Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm | June 27 – July 1
Students explore the basics of two-dimensional animation, beginning with a variety of traditional media (drawing, painting, monotype, and collage). Once still images have been created, students will create animations using Adobe Flash and Photoshop. At this point, students may opt to ditch traditional media in order to learn digital drawing and painting skills. Students will also be introduced to Dragon Frame Capture Software, a Nikon Digital SLR Camera, and Adobe Audition. All files created will be in digital format.
*this course may be taken for 1.5 credits; additional fees, pre-requisites, and requirements apply. Please contact the Continuing Education Office first to confirm eligibility before registering for credit.Montserrat Students should register via campus cafe
