Art in Animation

Art in Animation trains students in the fundamental concepts and practices of 2D animation by studying the twelve principles of animation and elements of design.

Art in Animation trains students in the fundamental concepts and practices of 2D animation by studying the principles of animation and elements of design.  Student skills develop through a series of exercises and projects that stress the foundations of animation through the understanding of weight physics and timing.  Students learn the principles of animation to gain a better understanding of the physics in movement.  Timing, weight, anticipation, overlapping animation, Secondary animation, exaggeration, balance, rhythm, symmetry,  proportion, arcs, and layout are some of the key fundamental tools needed to achieve lifelike animation.  Use of Adobe software and equipment will help the students gain the training needed to develop a beginner to Junior level understanding of both the animation and software skills needed to create the illusion of life.
