2D Animation (MAAA212)

Below is the weekly breakdown of projects and assignments for this class. The syllabi for this course, and others I teach, can be found on the main page. If you have a question or concern, please contact me.

Each week we will cover important 2D animation principles that will assist you with your final project. In-class assignments will be turned in during class each week and count towards your class participation grade.

I generally respond to e-mails within a few hours of receiving them. NOTE: Students are required to bring their sketchbook, pencils, and a Wacom Cintiq stylus to each class. Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and Adobe Flash are the digital tools we will use in class as well.
