Art and Animation Level 1

Today’s digital production artists must rely on strong traditional art and animation skills to meet the audience’s visual expectations. Through a variety of hands-on projects, you will be introduced to the tools and techniques professional artists use while creating their own 2D and 3D animations. You will experience firsthand how each step of the art production process works while also developing foundational skills, including drawing and sculpting.

You will learn:

  • Basic drawing and fine art skills
  • The art and science of animation
  • 3D computer animation processes, including modeling and texturing
  • Fundamental storytelling, dialogue, and creative writing techniques
