Within this Animation course, we will focus on the study of designing, drawing, and making the illusion of motion pictures just by changing their static images which are not similar to each other.
Objectives of the course:
As students move through the production process, they will bring an idea of a basic character to life and will learn to weave stories through the art of animation. By studying and analyzing various animated works, styles, and artists, students will become better animators themselves. Through a diverse range of projects, students will explore different genres of animation and will gain experience with a variety of techniques and animation tools.
