Traditional Drawing/Animation Teacher, with 20+ years experience, offers lessons and shares experience!

Methodology

My lessons start with drawing fundamentals and developing character anatomy. The lessons move to creating an environment where the character lives and their story. Depending on the focus of each student animation fundamentals can be reviewed and completed. That's it!

Background

I am an Animator and My Degree is in Photos and Films. My childhood character Drawing led me to animation. Teaching students animation starts with character and Drawing Fundamentals. When students work hard and Practice they succeed. YOU CAN TOO!
